Glare is experienced when an intensely bright source of light enters your eyes while contrasting with much lower levels of brightness from surrounding areas in your field of vision. In simplified terms, the bright spot throws out your eyes' brightness meter and the resulting glare causes you eye strain, discomfort, fatigue and temporary vision loss.
Most people are highly sensitive to glare, and experiencing it feels uncomfortable. It can also cause a serious safety hazard when you are driving, because you can experience a temporary "road blindness".
We recommend Visionaries Rimless clip on sunglasses for use with plastic spectacle frames. These clip-ons have a discreet appearance due to their rimless design which complements the design of plastic rimmed glasses. In use, these sophisticated clip on lenses look very similar to wearing prescription sunglasses.
The hazard of losing alertness on the motorway is greatest on a warm, sunny day, especially if you are driving towards the sun, because your eyes feel tired and strained from the effect of the glare. Wearing polarized sunglasses can significantly reduce eye strain, helping to keep you alert at the wheel.
