If you sometimes have trouble seeing clearly while driving, know this: you’re not alone! Weather conditions have a significant impact on visual comfort at the wheel. As a matter of fact, 94% of drivers experience reduced visibility when it’s raining. And 88% of drivers experience visual discomfort at dusk. A majority of drivers also say they find it harder to drive at night, when it’s foggy, and in low light conditions.
As the spring equinox approaches, the weather often takes a turn for the worse. Rain, fog, and snow seem to take turns assaulting the roads, making it much harder for drivers to see. With the sun rising earlier in the morning and setting later at night, sun glare can leave you temporarily blinded and make you feel less confident behind the wheel. Poor visibility on the road can make driving more stressful and less safe.
Of course, there will always be bad weather. But DriveSafe glasses make it easier to see in low light conditions and at night. Plus, the high quality anti-reflective coating reduces glare from oncoming traffic and nighttime lighting that can reduce visibility and contrast on the road. DriveSafe high tech glasses make it faster and easier to refocus when you shift your gaze back and forth from the road to the dashboard and your side and rearview mirrors. They can be worn at any time, but are designed for optimized driving so you can tackle the road with confidence!
If you (and your eyes) experience difficulty when driving in low light, talk to an Opto-Réseau eye care professional. They’ll be able to offer advice and find the solution that best fits your needs and lifestyle.
