I want the best possible lenses for driving

Do any of these situations sound familiar?

  • Glare when driving in the dark

  • When I drive in the evening, the sun is always lower than my car’s sun visor, which makes it extremely hard to see.

  • When I drive on sunny days, I’m distracted by the strong light reflection on the road’s surface and on my dashboard.

  • I have sunglasses that I use for driving, but they have no eye correction so I don’t see very clearly at a distance when I wear them.

Have you tried sunglasses adapted to your eyesight?

When driving, proper vision is not only a matter of comfort, but also safety.

Not being able to see clearly because of glare, can create a dangerous situation. But switching out your normal glasses for non-prescription sunglasses while driving isn’t responsible either.

When choosing your sunglass lenses, remember that too-dark lenses limit your vision in the shade, and aren’t recommended for driving. Also, the lens tint should be color-balanced so your color perception of traffic lights remains unchanged.

The best solution for during the day is a pair of sunglasses, that also correct your vision. They’re perfect to keep in your car so you can switch them out with your normal glasses at a moment’s notice.

The best solution for during the night is SeeCoat Drive lenses (these can be used as everyday lenses).
