night blindness

Do any of you have trouble driving in low light, cloudy days, or at night?
I've had this problems for several years & wonder if the optic nerve of migraineurs are damaged from migraines. Thanks.

Yes I do, but I put it down to my age (63). I just saw my eye doctor last week and he said to wear the ONE power reading glasses (which I get in the dollar store!), I can see soooo clearly with them on. I use two and a half power to read with. I find it even worse if it's wet out, with all the glare.

I do, but also chalked it up to age. I didn't seem to have a problem before I turned 40. I have more trouble when it's been raining or the road is wet. The glare from the oncoming lights or even my own make it so hard to see the lines. I try not to drive out of town at night if I can avoid it.

Thanks for your replies. I would have thought it was my age too but I've been having this problem for 30 years, just about the time my migraines started.
Ruth, thanks for the tip on the reading glasses. I'll try them.
