Driving at night can be nerve-wracking for many drivers. We can’t see well in the dark and the glare of the oncoming headlights contribute to it.
However, investing in a pair of night driving glasses will help you avoid accidents by improving your vision.
What are Night Driving Glasses?
Night driving glasses have yellow-tinted lenses, which help decrease reflections and glare from oncoming headlights and streetlights. The yellow-tint filters out blue light to increase night-time visibility.
Some night driving glasses have an anti-glare or anti-reflective coating. This permits more light in and also cuts down on glare. The coating can sharpen vision and reduce halo around bright lights.
Here are some tips for driving safely at night:
1. Invest in night driving glasses
These glasses are worn to reduce glare from lights, glass and water. The best polarized lens colours for night-time are yellow and amber. These are best for daily use.
Reducing eyestrain by cutting through the glare, polarized glasses are optimal for night driving.
Retro polarized night driving glasses
These glasses have non-polarized, photochromatic lenses with metal frames. The best option for night-time driving is the anti-glare, yellow night lenses.
Strong and lightweight, retro polarized glasses will filter out about 20% of the glare from headlights.
Clear night original night driving glasses
These are night driving glasses with an anti-glare coating. The lenses are scratch resistant as they are TAC (Tri Acetate Cellulose) polarized lenses. These offer superior vision and clarity in dim lights.
2. Clean your windshield
Make sure your windshield is clean on the inside and outside because dust and dirt can pile up and intensify glare.
Replace or clean your windshield wipers. Dirty or damaged headlights should also be cleaned or repaired.
3. Clean your prescription glasses
Clean your prescription glasses of any smudges, as they can scatter light and increase the effects of glare.
