After surgery and cataract removed and lense implanted, after four days vision is so impaired objects are indistinct, out of focus and colors are faded. Is this normal? And if so how long before a normal vision will appear?

Sometimes after surgery, you can have swelling of your cornea. This is most prominent the first days after surgery and should steadily get better during the first week.
It appears in your situation that your vision is worsening, which is worrisome. I'd recommend you call your surgeon and have a repeat eye exam to make sure there is not an infection.
