Glasses for night driving


Driving is the most important task that requires clear, sharp vision at all times; both for your safety and the safety of others on the road. Driving at night in particular requires good vision, when hazards can be less obvious. Unfortunately, night driving can’t always be avoided, particularly when the clocks change and it becomes darker much earlier in the day. This is why glasses for night driving can be a helpful addition to your daily routine.

There are many different issues with night driving when it comes to your vision. Things like depth perception, ability to distinguish colour and peripheral vision are all worse in low-light conditions. Furthermore, glare off other cars, headlight and streetlights can cause havoc if you wear prescription lenses.
