Hi there, midnight-oil-burner. I’m sorry to hear about your late commutes, but we have some information about night driving glasses that might help.
Night driving glasses share a lot of characteristics with hunting or sports glasses. Most will use yellow-tinted non-prescription lenses to reduce glare and improve nighttime vision.
To some extent, a yellow tint will succeed at reducing glare—but studies suggest that nighttime glasses block too much blue light. This could potentially increase a driver’s tiredness and worsen visibility.
A better option would be opting for glasses with anti-reflective coating. You can get these glasses at any eyewear maker or online. Glasses with anti-reflective coating have the following benefits:
- Allow 100% of visible light to reach your eye
- Reduce glare and distracting reflections (streetlights and oncoming headlights)
- Can be enhanced with a prescription (astigmatism correction)
