For many people, especially older people, the beauty of nighttime is getting obscured by a condition called nyctalopia, more commonly referred to as night blindness. Not only can these people not appreciate the beauty of the night, they cannot easily do their regular day-to-day activities like reading, knitting, driving, or even walking at night.
When you go for a regular eye test, your eyesight is checked in good light. In most cases (if not all), the optometrist does not test for night blindness. This is not an ideal practice, considering night blindness can lead to many other health complications.
The most common complication is injuries sustained because you could not see obstacles clearly while driving or walking. These injuries can be minor, or they could be serious enough to land you in a nursing home. Another problem with night blindness is that people lose their confidence, they stay at home as they are afraid to go out, and this could lead to mood problems, joint problems, even digestive problems.
Now there are different reasons for night blindness. It could be congenital, it could be because of conditions like macular degeneration or cataracts, or it could be a symptom of another illness or trauma.
But in most cases, it is because of dietary deficiencies. This type of night blindness can easily be avoided with a few tricks and tips, and a little bit of dietary planning.
If you are just developing night blindness, the tricks below will help you, and the dietary changes will ensure that the condition does not get worse. But if your night blindness is severe, some of the tricks may not work. But don’t worry! Once you incorporate the natural supplements for night vision in your diet, it will dramatically help see you see better at night.
