Have you gone for a prescription check since the cataract surgery? I would probably start there and see if your vision can be improved with a prescription. Then, if not, also go for a second opinion by another cataract and retina specialist to look at the lens implants they put in and check your macula, respectively. Vision decrease can caused by multiple parts. Swollen lids and crust can be looked at by the general ophthalmologist and treated/managed separately. Depending on the place you went to they may have a team of specialist that may be able to tackle that for you. If you go in there telling them about your swollen lids they will focus on that for you.
How advanced is your Glaucoma? If very advanced, it can influence vision as well.
