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 moreSee 1 more doctor answer
With glasses/contact: If you have blurry vision and it's affecting your ability to carry out your normal routine, you may have a refractive error. This means that if your vision is blurry enough (let's say 20/40), &glasses or contacts may be prescribed to correct your visual blurriness.

Sorry, You can't. : Unfortunately, you can't do anything "naturally" that will improve your eyesight. There are no known exercises, or supplements/vitamins or herbs that will do this.

Companies that do not have fda approval for their treatment almost always means that what they call a "clinical study"is a joke. ...Read more
Probably not: Unless you have some treatable eye disease which lowers the sight and will improve with treatment then there is no natural agent that will help vision meaningfully. Herbals such as eyebright and bilberry are promoted by naturopaths as vision aids, but have not been proven to actually work. Eye exercises can be done, but these have not been proven. See your ophthalmologist for the best advice. ...Read more
Healthy choices: My father taught me a great dietary system. He said "eat like a king in the morning, a prince in the afternoon, and a pauper at night." dinner should be your lightest meal. Don't starve yourself, that slows metabolism, eat healthy snacks between meals. Exercise to build muscle. Hydrate! b vitamins, coq10 (gives your muscles energy) and green tea or mate tea. ...Read more

Not really useful: Eye exercises have been suggested for decades to improve vision. The problem is they do not work. But the hope that they might is always in the minds of many and there are "therapists" who will take advantage of that hope to make money. Save your money and consider LASIK surgery as an option. ...Read more
Depends: Visual loss from refractive (eyeglass) needs is slow so some adaptation is possible. Visual loss from disease and pathology can occur rapidly. If you have rapid loss or reach a point that you struggle to see, then you should visit your ophthalmologist. You will notice depending upon the change and your sensitivity. ...Read more
