According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, fatalities on the road occur three times more often at night than during the day even though only a quarter of all driving is done at night. In low-light conditions, your depth perception, ability to distinguish color and contrast as well as peripheral vision all worsen.
Add to that glare issues and light sensitivity due to on-coming drivers’ bright headlights and it’s understandable why many people scale back on their night time activities or forgo them all together.
We’ve got a plethora of safety tips to help you feel in control when you’re behind the wheel! (Check out this link on how to combat glare and those moments when you’re momentarily blinded by another driver’s lights-)
Don’t stop living the life you want to live because of deteriorating vision!
