I am just wondering what is your pick for glasses or visor even? I know that sunlight on the windshield can blind you, as can headlights at night with all the varying bulbs out there, rain etc. Another is winter driving, whiteout? what is your best choice for seeing? And I know some one is going to say "pull over in a whiteout" I mean/ meant, it's white out! Thanks All, just haven't seen it asked.confused.gif

I always loved the ambervision glasses for at night or in heavy snow. They do an awesome job of making it easier to see and it's easier on your eyes.

Thanks Brett, I have a pair of my fathers that are so scratched you wouldn't think you could see out of them but they are still ok to see

I've read where at least one company doesn't allow you to wear night time glasses. I've also read that the night time vision glasses in fact impair your vision and is bad for you.confused.gif

My thought would be if it keeps you from being blinded and you can see what is around you then, You are in control of a killing machine!!

Please don't take that the wrong way!!! All that was meant is, if you can find" an aide to help you see" then you are cutting off probably 1 1/2 seconds of reaction time, if your lucky. I'm sorry but as you get older and things get newer (headlights, streetlights, etc.) you have more to deal with. Hell, my 18 yr old daughter has a problem with glare.

Does anyone know of a type of glasses that will cut glare, but not affect colors (at least not a lot)? I really dislike sunglasses, but figure I should use something to eliminate eye fatigue.

That is my biggest problem, GLARE! I wear transitions, which I love but they only do so much and it's not that I have to wear them constantly but they do cut down on the amount of light taken in.
