How to Improve Night Vision

Have you ever gone to the bathroom in the middle of the night and accidentally stubbed your toe on a piece of furniture because you couldn’t see that well? This condition is called night blindness - it makes it difficult for you to see in low light.

Here are some effective ways to improve your vision at night:

Healthy Diet

A healthy diet is vital to improving your night vision, and your eye health. Vitamin A is important for night vision because it contains rhodopsin, a light-absorbing protein in the retina, which helps you see better at night. Carrots, tomatoes and dark green leafy vegetables are great sources of Vitamin A.

Rest your eyes and do eye exercises

Even your eyes need to rest. It is advisable to take breaks after long periods of doing near work or computer work. Make eye exercises a daily habit for you, whether you’re in school, at work, or even at home. These exercises help to relieve eye strain, and strengthen your eyes.

Here are some simple eye exercises you can do, wherever you are.

Massage your eyes

Gently massage your eyes by closing them, and applying very light pressure on both your eyes with the palm of your hands. Keep it there for about five to ten seconds. This will allow your eyes to rest and adjust better in the dark.

Consult your eye care professional

If you continue having trouble seeing at night, consult an eye care professional. Night blindness can sometimes be caused by cataracts or glaucoma. Seeing a professional can help detect serious eye problems and prevent them from getting worse.
