The answer to your questions is that it varies quite a bit.  Most cases are a bit different in what causes the cataract, the age / maturity of the cataract and health of other structures in the eye.  

The only way to answer your question will be to have a veterinary ophthalmologist see your dog and do a complete ophthalmic exam and make those determinations.  

Wish I could give you a set answer, but it does not exist.
