You can help minimise the widely-experienced frustrations associated with night vision by following these tips:
- Have your eyes tested to make sure you are wearing your optimal visual correction (even if you don’t need glasses, a small prescription can make a big difference at night – ask to see the difference the prescription makes in a darkened room).
- Have an anti-reflective coating applied to your lenses to reduce glare from lights at night.
- Wear sunglasses during long periods in bright light. This assists in retaining normal vision at night.
- Allow your eyes to adjust to the darkness before driving at night.
- Do not wear sunglasses or tinted glasses while driving at night.
- Stay on well-lit roads and use high beams whenever possible.
- Avoid looking directly at oncoming car’ headlights.
- Drive more slowly at night.
- Do not smoke in the car.
- Keep your eyeglasses, mirrors, windshield, rear window, headlights and rear lights clean.
