Probably not: Need to investigate why you have decreased night. Bilberry does very little for anyone with normal eyes and a normal diet.

Maybe: There were some studies many years back that demonstrated improved night vision if taking bilberry. 1 randomized study and 7 non- randomized studies demonstrated positive effect from bilberry. The 4 most recent randomized controlled studies demonstrate no affect of bilberry on night vision. http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/14711439 and http://www.Thorne.Com/altmedrev/.Fulltext/5/2/164.Pdf.
