Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
Night blindness is very different from refractive disorders in the eye. Refractive disorders (minus eyes or myopia, plus eyes or hypermetropia, cylindrical eyes or astigmatism) are conditions that can be corrected using glasses. Night blindness is the inability or difficulty of the eye to see in low light or dark conditions. The causes of night blindness can vary. One of the most common causes is vitamin A deficiency / deficiency. Other causes of night blindness include:
eye minus cataract glaucoma and treatment for diabetic glaucoma retinitis pigmentosa, a genetic disease that causes damage to cells in the retina of the keratoconus eye, which is a change in the shape of the cornea that was originally rounded to stand out like a cone shape If your night blindness is caused by eyes minus, then night blindness can be improved by the use of glasses with a minus lens (the strength of the lens must be adjusted to refractive disorders in your own eyes so it must be checked first). If night blindness is caused by something else, then wearing glasses will not improve the condition.
You should check yourself to the eye doctor first to find the exact cause. Meanwhile you can try to consume foods that are high in vitamin A such as animal liver (beef liver or chicken liver for example), fish such as mackerel, salmon, sweet potatoes, pumpkin, kale, carrots, spinach, etc.
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
