A recent study has shown that half of regular drivers are finding that dazzling headlights are affecting their ability to drive safely.
This is because of glare from bright headlights. In fact 91% said that they find car headlights too bright when driving on our roads. A lot of drivers don't realise that their own headlights cause issues for other drivers and that there are steps we can all take in order to help other road users.
For example: Drivers don't realise that they can alter their headlights (up or down) depending on the car carrying different loads and majority of road users keep their headlights in the same position no matter the journey they are making. This is an issue that causes problems for other road users yet is a simple and effective way of doing our bit.
Are you finding glare a problem when driving at night time? If you are, then we recommend the Twilight Cocoon glasses from www.associatedoptical.com
Similarly, the sun rays are also a big issue with many drivers. Some drivers find that they are unable to drive confidently without the use of sunglasses due to the suns glare.
We recommend a product called Cocoons to help with this issue.
Designed especially with day time driving in mind, the Cocoons eyewear offer a lifetime warranty and offer UV400 Protection. Their lenses are scratch resistant and customers have found these glasses to be helpful not only with driving but when out and about due to their discrete design.
