Uneasy driving after dark?
You are not alone. Problems with night vision are common and can affect your confidence behind the wheel.
At night, your eyes adjust to the dark by expanding your pupil to let in more light. As your pupil enlarges, any vision imperfections will become more noticeable.
Night-time darkness impacts how well you can judge your surroundings, your ability to distinguish between objects, your peripheral vision and ability to distinguish colour.
To be more comfortable driving at night don’t stare directly into oncoming headlights and make sure your windscreen is clean – inside and out.
Book an appointment with one your optometrist to assess your vision, they can offer solutions that may increase your driving confidence.
