Have you ever had trouble seeing at night or in poor light? You may suffer from night blindness, or nyctalopia. Contrary to popular believe, night blindness is not a disease, but an underlying problem, usually a retinal one. The good news is, the issue is treatable most of the time. 

Some of the major causes of night blindness include:

  • Cataracts
  • Nearsightedness
  • Use of certain drugs
  • Vitamin A deficiency 

The treatment options vary on the cause of night blindness, so if you have trouble seeing at night, visit your doctor immediately to resolve the issue.
