    snake - beta carotine - the vit A IIRC from carrots was always reckoned to be one thing for visual improvement. Maybe too regarding night vision accuity.

    Not sure just how much tho. As for herbal choices - just not sure tho have a feeling some googling would turn up a bunch of info.

    Most months there is an ad in the magazines published by NRA, especially The American Rifleman and America's 1st Freedom. There is not one in th November issue of America's 1st Freedom which is the only one I have with me right now. I am pretty sure there was one in the September issue.

    This is what they have been advertisinf. It is about $300 for six months. Awfully expensive for what is in it.

    Most knowledgeable folks say luetein,bilberry and a good multiple vitamin would do the same. I buy all my vitamins and stuff from swanson and they have good prices and a wide range of vision helping supplements.

    I have heard some good things about natural Bilberry Extract in capsule form.
    It's not expensive. There are conflicting reports as to if it helps or not.
    I am taking it and I think it has bettered my Night Vision and it's not my imagination.
    It took about a month for me to notice a distinct improvement.

    You are right on the money. Vit A helps with vision. Most importantly, imo, a steady supply of vit A helps at night when you get temp blinded. A quick recovery time is partily because of vit A.

    My mother swears by the results from Occuvite brand vitamins. Many grocery stores carry them. I'm gettin close to trying it myself!

    I use L-arginine, Gingko Biloba and Coenzyme Q-10 to increase blood flow and O2 delivery....
    My vision is brighter and have more clarity.....
    I still need my glasses though....

    My experience with herbal treatment is most people expect an instant relief such as taking an asprin. Herbs take more time to be assimulated into the body, several days even a month. So most people quit before the see any effects.
    For instance, both my wife and I take a maintence dose of eshinacea, not tablets or store bought, we make our own. I have had two major surgeries with several days stay in hospitals. The worse place for a healthy person to be exposed to everything that comes down the pike.
    I can't remember when either my wife or I have had a cold, flu or anything else.
    This may be a little off topic but just my two cents worth.

    I agree with QKShooter. I've been taking Bilberry capsules for about 2 years & my night vision has definitely improved.

    Yup, pulled out the old "Nature's Pharmacy" (see, us tree-huggers are good for something) and Bilberry is what you want, followed by Eyebright which is an herb.

    Eyebright

    Eyebright has been around for centuries. It is native to Europe but now found in the Northwest and British Columbia.
    It has been used for inflammation and reducing irritation in the eyes as a wash. The procedure is to put two or three drops of the tincture in an eye wash cup along with distilled water. Wash the eye out by blinking several times.
    The tinctures are available at any quality health food store. But make sure it is natural grown and not an imported mixture.
    We get our tinctures from Dr. Schulze or make our own.
    I have bben blessed with very good night vision so don't know if it helps or not.
    Need anymore info give me a shout.
