C.R.T. Is the contact lense you wear at night, then remove in the day to achieve 20/20 vision, does this work?
Less light.: At night your pupil dilates in an attempt to permit more light to enter your eye and impact your retina. The center of our vision is the macula where our more precise "cone" photoreceptors reside and permits us to see well in light. Our peripheral retina has less precise "rod" receptors that are more exposed at night when our pupil dilates. This is why your vision is "fuzzier" at night. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Depends: For individuals with normal retinal function, there is, unfortunately, no way to develop superhero grade night vision. Conversely, for patients with decreased night vision or “nyctalopia”, as a result of dietary vitamin a deficiency, vitamin a supplementation will hopefully restore normal human grade night vision. Patients with degenerative conditions such as retinitis pigmentosa, unfortunately, lose night vision and peripheral vision from progressive photoreceptor loss. Patients with congenital stationary night blindness, cone/rod dystrophies and other degenerative disorders also have photoreceptor loss with loss of night vision. Although until now there hasn’t been much to offer these patients, research is currently underway investigating a large array of agents which may offer them some hope for the future. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
