Halos are a widely-known side effect of multifocal IOLs, and often diminish in recognition with time.  You likely knew this, and that your different IOLs would perform different functions as far as near, intermediate, and distance??

1. Sometimes glasses with anti-reflective coating helps at night.
2. You have "dysphotopsia" it may improve or even disappear with time.
3. In some cases dysphotopsia is permanent.
