    Many people who have problems with halos see them go away within a few weeks, most within a few months, a small number taking a year or more for them to go away, with a small minority continuing to have probems with them. The  percentage that have problems with them depends on the type  of lens you had inserted, but some people see them even with monofocal lenses, there isn't a lens yet that doesn't give at least a small percentage of  people problematic halos. Most studies on lenses report the percentage of peope with halos at 3 or 6 months to give them time to fade.  Since you had RLE rather than cataract surgery, the odds are you had a premium lens implanted.  Multifocal lenses tend to have higher risk of halos after that initial first few months than monofocals, but the extended depth of focus Symfony lens reportedly has  a low risk of halo issues comparable to a monofocal.
