In brief: Possibly
A common cause of difficulty in night driving is cataracts which cause glare of oncoming headlamps and some corneal disease can do the same thing.
True night blindness from photoreceptor dysfunction is uncommon and usually is accompanied by generally poor vision as well. Have you ophthalmologist see you to sort this out.
