Hello
Welcome to Health care Magic.

I am Dr. DADAPEER K, an Ophthalmologist and I answer health problems related to eye.

I reviewed your history. It seems from the history that your having night blindness. The treatment for night blindness depends on the underlying cause. The common causes are vitamin A deficiency, Retinitis pigmentosa, pathological myopia, congenital stationary night blindness...
Hence I advice you to first get evaluation by a ophthalmologist by eye examination to find out the underlying cause and treatment accordingly.

Hope the information is helpful to you.
Do write back to me for further questions.

Thank you
With regards
