ReSTOR lens problems

My new IOLs don't work for me as was advertised.  I can't focus close up under normal lighting conditions.  I discovered recently that I could see much better when reading under natural sunlight, but not when under even very bright incandescent or flourescent lights!  Why?  Will this improve in time?

All iols perform better in natural light vs. artificial light.  Multifocals and accomadative more so.  As for not being as advertised, yes it's true.  I think what is upseting is that the advertising is comming from the Dr.s and not just from the lens manufactureres.  From experience, I think those of us in sales want to make a sale so bad that we sometimes believe that what we are selling is best for our customers.  Opthamology may be no different.
