See yourself getting home safe

See yourself getting home safe

They say eyes are the windows to the soul. So, it’s super important to look after them, by keeping them bright, healthy and functional.

Your sight is a very important part of your being, keeping you safe and enabling you to see the beautiful people and places around you. Often, preventable eye damage can be avoided and for most of us, our daily routine can contribute to long-term harm.

For many people, driving at night can become a challenge, especially during Winter where weather conditions such as rain, hail or fog can hinder a clear view of the road. On average, 83 per cent of people who wear glasses also drive and therefore, require some extra help during difficult light and weather conditions. Without good eyesight, your chance of causing an accident involving yourself or someone else on the road increases. If your vision is making you feel insecure, uncomfortable or stressed on the road, it’s time to consider purchasing a pair of ZEISS DriveSafe Lenses.

How do they work?

Well, when driving you often need to switch your focus from the road, to your dashboard and your side and rear mirrors. With this level of multitasking, traditional progressive lens are not always the best to use when driving. However, ZEISS DriveSafe Lenses are specifically designed to meet the vision needs of people who want to feel safe and comfortable while driving with their everyday lenses. Plus, they come in both single vision and progressive lens types to accommodate those who struggle with up-close and distance focus.

If you need some extra help when driving, here’s how ZEISS DriveSafe Lenses can help.

  1. Our pupils dilate to allow light into the eye when it’s too dark and contract to avoid eye damage when the light is too bright. When driving, our pupils react to the light intensity from our surroundings. ZEISS’ Luminance Design®Technology helps by providing better vision in low light conditions, which is perfect for driving at dawn, dusk or during poor weather conditions.
  2. When driving we experience glare from direct sunlight, artificial light and car lighting. Intense glare reduces the visibility of the road and the eye’s sensibility of contrast. That’s why it takes a few seconds for your eyes to adjust after looking into bright light, such as the sun or a car headlight. ZEISS’ DuraVision®DriveSafe coating reduces glare at night, keeping you and other road users safe. Plus, the lenses also work to reduce glare during everyday use.
  3. As mentioned earlier, switching focus between the road, dashboard and mirrors can be a challenge for progressive lens wearers. But ZEISS’ DriveSafe lens design allows for accurate and dynamic vision while driving.

So, next time you’re in the drivers seat at night or when weather conditions could pose a challenge, consider if ZEISS DriveSafe Lenses could help you feel safer on the road. If so, speak to your National Pharmacies Optical staff today about ZEISS DriveSafe Lenses today.
