Glad your surgery has gone well.
I had multi-focal lens inplants about a year and half ago. Rezoom in dominant and ReStor in the other eye. I had read that many folks have the glare problem. However, having worn contacts all my adult life, I found any glare much less than I had with the contacts.
I found the biggest challenge in making the decision between multi-focal and mono was not having any way to reasonably predict the outcome since experiences are so individualized. However, when I realized that if necessary they could replace the muli-focal if it did not work, I bit the bullet and went with the multi-focal and am now glasses-free. On a rare occasion in low light, I will borrow my DW's readers to read fine print but otherwise no need.
The key is that the solution works for your daily life style.
Enjoy your new freedom and vision
