Driving at night for most of us is not as easy as driving during the day, and add in night-time glare and it’s especially difficult.
What are the causes of glare while driving? Here are just a few:
- Prescription being a little off (small changes in prescription are magnified at night)
- Dry eyes (This can cause a scattering of light enhancing glare)
- Large pupils and aberrations on the cornea (common after lasik surgery)
- Cataracts (#1 cause in patients over 65)
- Having a different prescription in the night vs the day
There are many causes and many types of solutions to night glare. Please share your challenges with your eye doctor at your annual eye health exam so that we can help find the best solution.
