What are night driving glasses?
Night driving glasses are usually non-prescription glasses with yellow lenses and can be bought in many optical stores or online.

What Are Computer Glasses?
Computer glasses or glasses for computer are prescription glasses that are designed to wear when doing computer work. They allow you to focus your eyes on a computer screen. There are other activities such as playing piano or shooting requiring a similar custom fitting.
Glasses for computer use are also known as blue light glasses. They block blue light that causes eye strain due to prolonged viewing of digital screens. Blue light is part of the color spectrum, and everyone is exposed to it through sunlight.
The glasses for computer use have a shorter wavelength than other colors and are emitted by electronic devices such as smartphones, TVs, computers and more. The glare from blue light is what causes digital eye strain or other symptoms. But the glasses for computer can protect your eyes from the damage of the glare.
Depending on an individual’s vision and type of work, there are several options while selecting glasses for computer use.
Monofocal: Monofocal or single-vision glasses are designed for computer work so that they provide the appropriate optical correction for the working distance between the screen and the user’s eye. These glasses allow users to view the whole screen with a minimum up-and-down head movement. However, the disadvantage of the monofocal glasses is that both distant objects and reading materials that are closer than the computer screen will appear blurry.
Bifocal: When it comes to glasses for computer screens, the bifocal glasses would be a choice. Bifocal glasses can be prescribed so that the upper segment is set up for screen distance and the lower segment for work. The disadvantage of these bifocal glasses is that it will blurry if the objects are farther away than the screen.
Trifocal: These trifocal glasses for computers have lenses that combine a segment for far vision, another for near vision and the third one for at the screen distance. The disadvantage of these glasses for computer screen is the limitation to view areas.
What color lenses are good for driving?
The optometrist reminded us that it is not advisable to choose pink, purple, light blue, and other colors with obvious decoration effects for driving sunglasses. These colored glasses basically cannot protect the eyes. In addition, they may change the color and cause chromatic aberration. Generally speaking, you should wear brown and gray glasses when driving. The brown lens can filter out a lot of blue light, which can effectively improve visual contrast and clarity. The gray lens can absorb any color spectrum in a balanced manner and will not produce obvious chromatic aberration after wearing.
Nowadays, the colors of lenses for sunglasses on the market are dazzling. Many people only consider whether they look good when choosing colors, and do not pay attention to the impact of lens colors on vision. When choosing sunglasses, we should not only pay attention to their decoration but also pay attention to their protective function for the eyes. We should avoid using blue lenses when driving because it will make us unable to distinguish the color of the traffic signal lights.

The Disadvantages of Aspheric Lenses
Here, we will show some disadvantages of aspheric lenses.
The aspheric lens has a relatively small light area. When the eyeball rotates around, it will blur a little when looking at the outside through lens edge. In other words, the visual range of the line of sight becomes smaller.
Human’s eyeball is spherical and the eyeball rotates to the edge. Through aspheric lenses, the objects near the eye appear protruding.

While lights on the road can make for a safer driving environment, they can take a toll on your eyes. If you often drive at night and feel eye strain or difficulty seeing in low light. If two cars are driving opposite each other at night and bright lights are turned on, it is almost impossible for the drivers of both cars to see the road ahead because the light is so annoying to the eyes. You might want to think of wearing a pair of night driving glasses.
Lens anti-fogging agent
To be specific, a layer of the anti-fogging agent is sprayed (coated) on the surface of the lens to form a dense, absorbent, ultra-thin, and ultra-transparent biological coating. The coating chelates the droplets inside the coating (chelating means processing the material into a digestible form) to form a continuous and supper transparent chelating coating, which converts the droplets into a transparent micro-glass layer, thus preventing fogging. Spray anti-fogging agent on the surface of the lens, and then wipe evenly with an ordinary lens cloth. It can be used on most lenses. They are easy to use but have relatively short anti-fogging time. During use, the lens should not be wiped or washed. Long time use will affect the lens life.
