There was something called claroxan on the market to improve day and night vision but it appears to be "snake oil". The supplements Ocuvite Lutein Plus (by Baush & Lomb), Bilberry, and Natrox Eye Support which contains lutein, bilberry, and "brighteye" have been reported to improve day and night vision.

For driving purposes, FLIRs will be pretty useless without the HUD. A traditional monitor will destroy your night vision, so you don't want that in your field of view at all. FLIRs work best where it's dead dark and you don't have to worry about stray light (or stray heat sources) causing the image to flare, which defeats the purpose. IIRC, the cadillac system used a 1-bit display - black and white - with the white represented by green and no black - so you could see thru the green image on the combining glass.

Military technology is harder to adapt than most people thing. Their environment (other than urban) is primarily dark, and with stuff used in airplanes - well, there's not much for an airplane to run into. Helicopters are the exception - low altitude, high speed, lots of stuff to run into - and they run into a lot of stuff!
