5 Reasons Night Driving Lenses Could Benefit You

Share on

It’s not long until the clocks go back and the nights begin to get darker much earlier. For many of you, this means feeling less confident behind the wheel, as it can be harder to see at night. Night driving doesn’t have to be a challenge if you have the right lens solution.

Wearing night driving lenses can help you to feel safer on the road, enhancing clarity and maximising your vision. Solutions such as Crizal Drive are optimised specifically for driving, helping you turn your experience behind the wheel into a more enjoyable one.

Driving at night can sometimes leave you feeling like you have blurred vision, difficulty focusing and problems with depth perception. Does this sound familiar? Crizal Drive could be the solution you’ve been looking for.

What is Crizal Drive?

Crizal Drive is a lens coating, applied to your lenses to enhance your vision clarity. The coating can add many benefits to your lenses, helping them to work harder in delivering sharp and uninterrupted vision; which is essential when you’re driving.

Part of the comprehensive Crizal range, Crizal Drive is optimised specifically for driving, no matter what vehicle you’re in. So, if you need to wear glasses for driving, Crizal Drive can make sure your glasses are working to their optimum.

What are the benefits of Crizal Drive?

Wearing glasses isn’t always a smooth experience. From smudges to reflections, sometimes your lenses can feel like a hindrance. By investing in Crizal Drive, you can eliminate any issues and feel much more confident and comfortable in your lenses. 

Here are just five benefits of Crizal Drive lens coatings

1. Fewer reflections on your lenses

At night, lights on the road can create reflections on your lenses. They can come from headlights, traffic lights, street lamps and even your dashboard, resulting in an inconvenient driving experience. 

Reflections in mirror from car behind

Crizal Drive has been developed to reduce these reflections; in fact, the lens coating can reduce up to 90% less reflections at night.

We experience discomfort of this kind because our vision is not adapted to environments such as driving at night. Reflections and glare at night disturb the rod cells in your eye, which is why you might experience lower visual acuity and discomfort. 

2. Smudge and scratch-resistant

Crizal Drive lens coatings can also protect your lenses from smudges and scratches, which can be very distracting when behind the wheel. Making your lenses easy to clean, Crizal lens coatings are scratch-resistant, guaranteed for two years.

Smudges and scratches can be incredibly bothersome, which can add to an uncomfortable driving experience. Eliminate the problem and concentrate on the road ahead, not the smudge on your lens.

3. UV protection

Overexposure to UV light can cause vision problems, including cataracts and photokeratitis. As you go about your daily lives, your lenses could help to protect your eyes from UVA and UVB rays and reduce your risk of eye health problems.

Crizal Drive offers UV protection for when you’re out of the car, or on a bike. In fact, Crizal Drive has an E-SPF rating of 25, which is the highest level of protection for a clear lens.

The lens coating also virtually eliminates back surface reflection, protecting you from UV that might be reflected off the back surface of the lens into your eyes. 

4. Enhanced visual comfort

Being free from reflections, smudges, and other similar issues can leave you feeling free and focused on concentrating on the road. Night driving is sometimes unavoidable, but by investing in Crizal Drive, you can sit behind the wheel knowing that your vision will be sharp and clear.

Comfortable vision shouldn’t be a challenge to achieve. With Crizal Drive, experience enhanced visual comfort from the moment you put your glasses on.

5. They work in the day as well as night  

Of course, sometimes driving at any time of the day can feel a little daunting, especially if your vision isn’t perfect. Crizal Drive will work through the day and night, no matter whether you drive a motorbike, car, lorry or another vehicle. 

Crizal Drive can maintain your visual acuity no matter the time of day. After all, you might experience smudges or reflections in the daytime too!
