Driving at Night – Keeping focus is hard!


Night Driving

The inability to see properly at night or in lowlight conditions affects everyone to some extent.

These complaints include blurry vision, haloed vision, or loss of certain aspects of peripheral vision. Not only does the darkness of the sky cause general complaints, but also the flicker and lights of traffic signals, high beams, headlights from other vehicles and street lights

Recent research confirms that over half of all drivers have night vision problems or concerns about their night vision, 83% of spectacle wearers are Drivers too

There are many reasons why your night vision could be impaired, negatively impacting your driving ability.

Here are some of the more common reasons for this issue.

  1. Changes in your Eye health – get complete Eye health check-up done, Developing cataracts or changes in retina sometimes worsen the problem.
  2. You may need Eye test – Some changes in refraction can also create discomfort while driving and you may find hard to focus. Book an appointment with your Optometrist for your detailed refraction.
  3. Is it glare? – When your Eyes are perfectly healthy and detailed refraction showed no changes in your prescription but you still have this feeling of discomfort while night driving – This Can be Glare.


A study conducted by Eyecare Trust, a UK organization dedicated to promoting eye health, found that over half of motorists, especially older drivers, have some trouble driving at night:

  • 73% experience discomfort from the glare of oncoming headlights

What is Glare – Glare is difficulty seeing in the presence of bright light such as direct or reflected Sunlight or artificial light such as car headlamp at night.

While driving at night due to intense light falling in your eye frequently from oncoming car headlight, signal light in otherwise dark or low light condition reduces overall driving comfort.

Glare can be reduced by reducing light transmission and adjusting or regulating the amount of light in the eye.

During the daytime, this is easy because sunglasses and Tinted lenses can be work and tint in the lens automatically reduces light transmission, But we can’t wear sunglasses in the night.

So what is the Solution?

You Need clear lenses with a coating that reduces Glare.

Does that mean Anti-reflection – NO!

Remember Anti-reflection and Anti-glare are two different things.

Anti Reflection is a coating on your spectacle lens that reduces reflection but Anti-glare means coating that reduces high-intensity bright light transmission, in simple words reduces Glare.
