Anti Glare and Night Driving

by Ash

Q: What if the antiglare does not work for night driving, what is the next best solution?

A: As you know, the anti-glare coating is designed to help to fight the reflection from objects in front of you.

The effectiveness of this coating depends on how intense the light is, how tired your eyes are at that moment, how many lights are reflected. Sometimes there is a sum of these factors, and the result is not the expected one.

I think the solution is to stop all of these factors so the result can be satisfactory.

If the clear anti-reflective coating is not enough, you can add a photochromic driving lens; this is a unique lens that is getting darker even in the car (the standard photochromic lenses does not darken in the car because of the UV protection offered by the glass).
Of course, the anti-reflective coating must be there for extra protection.

Another option is the polarized sunglasses, but not a dark one, so you can use them even when is getting darker.

For the eyes, I can recommend using artificial tears for long driving because in the car, from the air, the eyes tend to dry easier.

All of this together, I think can offer you better protection. If this is not enough, I would recommend you an ophthalmological consult to find the reason for this problem.

Hope this helps,
