Driving Glasses: BETTER Vision For A SafeR Journey
How To Choose The Best Glasses For Driving
A small mistake can have serious consequences, especially when you’re behind the wheel of your car. Healthy vision is a must to ensure a safe journey.
When you are driving, there are so many things you need to look out for. Not only do you have to be consistently focused to make sure you are aware of all the objects and obstacles around you, but you also have to watch out for dark signs and bright lights that can be difficult to see, or that can affect your vision.
Why Do You Need Driving Glasses?
A common distraction for drivers in the morning is glare, which is defined as a bright shining light. You may know glare as what occurs when the sun reflects off the hood of your car and into your eyes, or when bright lights suddenly shine out in the dark, causing you to feel temporarily blinded. To prevent accidents, having anti-glare coatings like Crizal®, on your lenses eliminates glare from your vision.
Driving at night or in low lighting can be particularly dangerous, as objects can fade into the darkness and bright lights can jump out of nowhere, disrupting your vision. However, there are lens coatings that are optimised for low light conditions, making it easier to drive at night.
Do Driving Glasses Really Help?
Driving glasses are glasses that are specially designed to help you on the road by cutting down on glare, allowing you to pick up objects in low lighting, and providing you with optimal vision through the day and the night.
This anti-reflective coating reduces the reflection you experience at night from bright lights such as headlights and street lamps. Cutting down on this glare can prevent you from feeling temporarily blinded, which can lead to dangerous conditions on the road.
Driving glasses allow for optimal vision during the day and night, helping you to see objects in low lighting and to keep a sharper focus while driving, even in the dark. They also provide a large field of vision to allow you to see from all sides, and protect you against harmful UV and blue-violet light, similar to the protection of sunglasses.
