After Daylight Savings Time, More Darkness on Your Morning Drive May Mean More Vision Problems

It’s daylight Savings time this weekend which means you will turn your clock forward, resulting in a little more dim light driving on your morning drive.

A survey done in 2007 found that 32% of drivers say that they have difficulty seeing all or most of the time while driving in the dark.  20% had trouble seeing turns in the road and 22% had trouble judging distance while driving at night. 61% said that headlights from oncoming traffic is bothersome and 48% experience glare while driving at night.  73% said that correcting vision problems would improve their ability to drive at night.  None of this is is surprising.

The surprising stat was this:  Only 27% talked with their Optometrist about these problems.

If you have having trouble seeing at night, book an eye appointment and ask what could be done to improve your night vision.
