What has helped me the most:
- a Paleo diet (cutting out sugars, available starches and inflammatory omega 6 fats)
- phytonutrient rich vegetables (carrots, peppers, and cruciferous vegetables)
- cod liver oil (with high omega 3 in combination with vitamin A in natural context, not purified)

The fish oil and colored vegetables in particular result in much brighter colors in my vision, particularly reds, purples and oranges.

Thank you Todd!
I was wondering if you heard of the supplement Bilberry?

Yes.  Bilberry is excellent,  It contains anthocyanocides which appear to stimulate production of retinal pigments that improve night vision and light tolerance.

Recently I happened to read an article about improving eyesight by juices and simple eye exercises ( http://www.pinewoodhealth.ca/blog/general-category/improve-your-sight-with-juices-and-eye/ ). Felt like sharing. Hope this will help. I think food and exercise will also play an important role for better eye health. So keep an eye on your diet along with eye supplements. All the best.

What is shared on this forum, many don't think eye exercises really work.
