cataract near and intermediate vision

I have -9.50 and -10.00 myopia.   Will be getting cataract surgery in about a year.

Want to aim at no glasses in daily life except driving, ie. some reading like menu (but can wear glasses for serious reading and paper work) and around the house, going to friend's house for dinner etc.   Only wear glasses for distance, for driving.

What would be suggested target to aim at ?  low as -1.00, -1.25  or high as -2.00 , -2.50.............

Could someone please give me some ideas ?  I understand it is not exact science, but would really appreciate some guidance.  Thank you so much in advance.

Go for plano in dominant eye to see well for driving and leave non-dominant eye around -1.00 for light reading and computer work.
