Sunlight can be hindering whilst driving, which can make the most confident of drivers feel less safe. Glare from the sunlight is not only a summer issue, this is common all year round and in all weather conditions, some more obvious than others, which can catch you out. Reflections from windows, wet roads, to low sunlight in winter are just some of the glares you aren’t always watching out for. Of course, these glares can cause temporary blindness which is what we need to avoid. This can be avoided by wearing the right eyewear and lenses.
What is the best type of lenses for driving?
It depends on what brand you are going to go for on our website. We stock the best optical brands: Ray-Ban, Nikon, Essilor, Oakley, our own Fashion Eyewear packages and more. If you wear your glasses every day, however, if you need them for daily tasks such as driving we recommend a high-quality lens. You can then add your coating to make it more functional for driving.
We recommend an anti-glare coating, these are perfect for anti-reflection while driving. This coating is available on all our lenses types and will eliminate those headlights and sunlight which can hinder your vision.
Nikon SeeCoat Drive
If you are buying a Nikon lens then you must add the SeeCoat Drive coating. This lens has been tailored to us drivers who spend a lot of time on the roads. It has many qualities; reduces glare, superior day vision, clear and transparent lenses, and can be worn at all times of the day.
As well as adding an anti-glare coating we also recommend polarised lenses. Polarised lenses are perfect for driving as they eliminate glare in daylight from horizontal surfaces such as roads, water and snow. Another bonus that comes with a polarised lens is 100% UV protection which can help ease eye strain.
