Which sunglasses are suitable for driving?
When driving during the day, under the strong sunlight, the eyes of most drivers will be irritated and uncomfortable, and they cannot look directly at the situation ahead: the reflection of the road, front and rear windshields, and glass walls of surrounding buildings, etc., will cause driver eye fatigue.
In addition, the eyeballs cannot adapt quickly when switching between bright and dark environments, which also increases the risk of driving. Therefore, you need to wear a pair of sunglasses to block these glares while driving. Let's take a look at what sunglasses are suitable for driving:
1. Choose sunglasses to avoid two major misunderstandings
To know which sunglasses are suitable for driving, you must first know which misunderstandings to avoid in the process of choosing sunglasses.
Myth 1: Do not wear myopia sunglasses
Some drivers with slight myopia usually do not wear myopia glasses when driving, and driving will not be affected. But once you wear sunglasses, your eyes will get tired easily, your eyesight will decrease, and you will not be able to see the situation in front of you clearly. Therefore, drivers with slight myopia must be equipped with lenses with myopia degree when choosing sunglasses.
Myth 2: The darker the lens, the better
The darker the color of the lens, the better the anti-ultraviolet function. The function of sunglasses to filter ultraviolet rays is only related to the coated film. On the contrary, if the driver wears sunglasses that are too dark, the eyes will be more prone to fatigue, and it is more dangerous to enter dark places such as tunnels from strong light.
2. Color selection is very important
For sunglasses worn while driving, it is not advisable to choose blue, purple, pink and other sunglasses with too strong decorative effects. These colors basically cannot block ultraviolet rays, do not protect the eyes, and may cause chromatic aberration. In general, brown and gray sunglasses are suitable for wearing while driving. Brown lenses can effectively improve visual contrast and clarity, and gray lenses will not produce obvious chromatic aberration after wearing them.
3. Polarized sunglasses are suitable for driving
Polarized sunglasses can reduce glare and effectively block part of the scattered light, so that the driver's vision is clear and natural when driving, and the surrounding scenery looks soft and not dazzling. Polarized sunglasses also have the functions of reducing glare, anti-fatigue, and anti-ultraviolet rays. Polarized sunglasses are a good choice when driving. However, when buying polarized sunglasses, you should pay attention to buying authentic products from professional and regular optical shops. Poor polarized sunglasses are likely to cause damage to your eyes.
What kind of sunglasses are suitable for driving? For drivers, wearing sunglasses is not only to block the glare of the sun, but also directly related to driving safety, so it is very important to choose good quality sunglasses.
