In brief: Sometimes

Decreased dim light vision is often caused by cataracts and other conditions that limit light getting to the receptors in the eye.
Often, people with nearsightedness, farsightedness, astigmatism or presbyopia whose prescriptions have worsened will notice it most when in dim light. The most important first step to improving vision is an eye exam to determine the cause of decreased vision.
