Poor mixed light / night vision


I had IOL's to correct my high +12 and +13 vision, May last year 2009.
I still have my eyes natural lense, and the implants are a single vision lense.
The problem I have, apparently is over active pupils or pupils that open past the size of the implanted lense in poor lighting situations. This results in halo effects which blur my vision while driving at night, until a vehicle is driving towards me, then the light closes my pupil and everything comes back into focus. My vision is great in good light. Is there anyway around this ??? It makes my job quite difficult also.

Get some drops like alphagan from your doctor to constrict your pupils in low light conditions.
