It depends to some extent on the causes. If it's corneal irregularities, there can be a certain amount of smoothing over the months that may reduce starbursts/haloes. If it's prescription, it usually stabilises within months. If it's pupil size related, it may be less likely to show large improvement. Another factor is if there is much reduction of contrast sensitivity, that is not likely to show improvement.

Any thing out there that minimizes the halos and glares?
1) Miotics (pupil constricting eyedrops) such as Alphagan or Pilocarpine, which temporarily reduce pupil size. They are not a fixall as they can have side effects and if used frequently they can become less effective, but for periodic use they can be very helpful.
2) Gas permeable contact lenses: These can provide an artificially smooth, large optical zone which usually dramatically reduces or eliminates haloes and starbursts. They can be hard to fit. However many patients who literally cannot drive because of the symptoms are motivated to go through the process.
For more information you might want to post or have a look through the bulletin board archives of D'Eyealogues or SurgicalEyes/VSRN.
