In brief: Night myopia

The etiology of nightime myopia is your peripheral cornea needs a higher rx than the center. So when your pupil dilates at night, it reveals the peripheral cornea, so you wind up with nighttime myopia it's impossible to make glasses or contacts with higher prescriptions on the periphery, because of translational and registration issues the only way to eliminate nighttime myopia is with lasek.
