In brief: Yes

In some patients adding a negative 1/2 diopter improves their night vision.
Also night vision goggles can improve your vision at night. Spending several minutes in the dark, adapts your rods so you can see better. Use a red light flashlight to avoid loosing your dark adaptation. Don't forget that wild cats have 6 times better night vision than humans, so be careful out there. :).

In brief: Not really

There are infrared night goggles (commonly used by the military) which can give you vision in the darkness but these are bulky and awkward for ordinary use.
There are no ordinary glasses that will improve night vision.
