More than a decade ago, night driving glasses were first introduced to the market. They were presented as a solution to the dangers of long night-time rides. You know how travelling at night can be a challenge, even for professional drivers. They slowly gained popularity. People realized their need of light sensitivity glasses for driving. But, what was the result of many years of research? It has been exposed that night glasses are not as effective and useful as you might think.
It has been proven that the usage of yellow-tinted glasses when driving can do more harm than good. Yellow lenses decrease the amount of light coming into our eye lessening visibility, as a result. During the night, the situation can be detrimental, rather than useful.
Night glasses are available in many shades of amber and yellow. The dark lenses filter out most of the glare and a significant portion of light, making it difficult to see in dim or dark situations. So, night driving glasses to the rescue?
Some users report that they can see better at night when wearing them. Visual tests specify that night driving glasses do not improve any night vision. In addition, they don't even help the drivers see walkers any quicker than they would without having them. Some studies have even shown that night driving glasses slowed down visual impulses by less than a second, making night vision somewhat worse.
