Yes find the reasons: “photophobia or light sensitivity is a common eye complaint. It can result from several different conditions and in most cases is easily treatable when you find the cause.
Treatment for night blindness will depend on its cause. Treatment may be as simple as a new prescription for your eyeglasses or switching glaucoma drugs, or it may require surgery if it's the result of cataracts.
