Don't forget that wild cats have 6 times better night vision than humans, so be careful out there. :). ...Read more

Do eyeglasses really help bad night vision?

Do eyeglasses really help bad night vision?

Yes: At night, your pupils dilate. This (along with a few other changes that occur at night) may cause a temporary change in your glasses prescription leading to "night myopia" or slight nearsightedness at night. This makes many people feel as though they have "bad night vision" but really a small glasses prescription to be worn at night particularly while driving can help night vision. ...Read more

I wear glasses, sometimes i don't wear them, either way my vision at night time is wrose off then day time, does that mean anything?

I wear glasses, sometimes i don't wear them, either way my vision at night time is wrose off then day time, does that mean anything?

Night vision: Most people see worse at night than by day. This is common for a few reasons. For one, many people are more near-sighted at night, since it is harder to pick a point of focus. Also, at night people rely more on the rods than the cones in their eyes, and rods are not as good at perceiving sharp details. If you cannot see at all during the night, this might indicate a true eye disease... ...Read more

Can there be special eye-glasses available for driving at night even if the person has pretty good vision?

Best Vision: Decreased vision may be due to uncorrected refractive errors, meaning you need glasses to see your best. Even a slight degree of nearsightedness can further reduce vision at night.

How can you improve your night vision?

How can you improve your night vision?

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 more
