The Best Prescription Glasses for Night Driving

Whether you are traveling short or long distances, the odds are good that you are traveling by car. Along with this, even though we keep hearing about the self-driving car revolution, nearly every one of us is driving our own car.

Obviously, driving has both its pros and cons. Obviously, the freedom to travel whenever you want, wherever you want is appealing. But conversely, driving can be stressful—especially if you don’t have perfect vision. This is even truer at night. If you have poor eyesight and are driving at night, you are vulnerable to many potential risks at night, ranging from traffic all around you to a pedestrian running in front of your car.

Luckily, you don’t have to settle for the status quo. You can take action to not only improve your safety, but to have a better experience when you are driving at night.

We are talking about prescription glasses for night driving. These glasses can play a large part in making you safer and more comfortable when you are in your car. They can even save your life. This is especially critical as you get older, as night vision tends to weaken as we age.

But that said, you may not be certain about which glasses to purchase. While it can be overwhelming, we have created this guide to help you choose the best prescription glasses for night driving. Whichever pair of glasses you choose, we believe that prescription glasses can make your life easier when you are driving at night.

Key Features of Night Driving Glasses

Having said all of this, there are some key features that you will want to search for when purchasing prescription glasses for night driving.

First, it is important to note that the best types of night driving glasses contain anti-reflective coating. When you are driving at night, you can come across several bright sources, including headlights and taillights from cars and street lights. These light sources can be distracting for any driver, but especially for those drivers with eye issues. The light reflecting off of these sources can cause these drivers to temporarily lose sight of the road, which can lead to any number of unfortunate scenarios.

Ultimately, this anti-reflective coating can protect your eyes both from nighttime brightness and daytime ultraviolet rays. The coating in these glasses can prevent reflection from these light sources, allowing you to better focus on what is happening in front of your vehicle. Along with this, prescription glasses with anti-reflective coating can reduce glare and sharpen your vision.

No matter which prescription glasses you choose for your night driving, you will want to ensure that they have an anti-reflective coating. But beyond that, you also have a choice over the type of lenses that you use. Your best choice is either clear or yellow lenses.

However, we do recommend that you place some serious weight on yellow (or amber) lenses. Even under low-light conditions, yellow lenses can be extremely effective. They increase your depth awareness and enhance contrast when you are driving. In other words, they broaden your visual view so that you can see more cars, people and objects on the road. Especially if you are traveling at a fast speed down a dark road, this broadened, enhanced view can help you see more clearly.

These are several features that you should look for when purchasing prescription glasses for night driving. No matter the style or look of your glasses, make sure that they are specifically designed to eliminate glare and enhance your view when you are on the road at night.

Some Example Night Driving Glasses

The features above are clear. You are going to want to search for glasses that have yellow or clear lenses and that contain anti-reflective coating. This will give you some of the best protection when you are driving down dark roads at night.

But specifically, which glasses should you select? At Rx-Safety, we provide a wide range of eyewear, from prescription safety glasses to sunglasses and other sports glasses. All of our glasses can be made with anti-reflective coating and different lens colors, so you have a wide selection of options at your fingertips.

For instance, you may want to check out the Geek 111 eyeglasses. The Geek 111 is a unique, yet timeless frame that contains decorative metal plaques. The metal accent on the temple bars makes this a sleek pair that you will be proud to show to family and friends. For this frame, you can select from several different colors, including black, brown, and grey. To reiterate, if you choose this frame, you can easily add anti-reflective coating and/or different lens colors so that you can be more confident when driving at night.

Next, you can check out the Nike 7924A prescription eyeglasses. This sleek pair of glasses is created and designed by Nike, so you can be confident that this is a high-quality frame. The Nike 7924A is extremely lightweight. It has thin, injected temples, meaning that there is less pressure on your face. A partial core wire allows for some adjustability, so you can ensure that you are most comfortable when wearing this frame. It even has larger nose pads which can further accommodate low or narrow bridges. At Rx-Safety, we offer the Nike 7294A in several non-traditional colors like matte anthracite, dark magnet grey, and, yes, black.

You may also want to check out the Lacoste L2834 eyeglasses. Compared to the prior examples, this frame is for women only. This is a stylish frame that features a round shape and a saddle bridge. On the temple, you can see the distinct Lacoste logo. The plastic frame comes in three colors: black, havana, and burgundy.

Finally, we recommend that you look at the Nike 6074 eyeglasses. These eyeglasses, made specifically for men, have a titanium frame. Because titanium is one of the world’s lightest and most durable materials, this frame will feel extremely comfortable on your face. It also has silicone nose pads for easy adjustments and comfort. Along with the comfort of this pair, these eyeglasses have corrosion resistance and are hypoallergenic. The rectangular shape of these eyeglasses and their single bridge make this pair extremely easy on the eyes. You can purchase the Nike 6074 eyeglasses in satin black, gunmetal, or satin walnut.
