Drivers are still responsible for the self-regulation of their eyesight - 92% of licence holders believe they can see perfectly well and up to standard, but 66% don’t know what that standard is. 

To compound the visual deficiencies amongst the driving population, a YouGov survey has found that 54% of adults never wear sunglasses outside, or only wear them sometimes. The consequences of developing cataracts and age-related Macula Degeneration can be reduced by wearing Ultra Violet protective Sunglasses. Driving in low sun can be difficult…

All this confirms why the Drivewear Lens sells so well - unlike a fixed tint sunglass, Drivewear lenses offer a Polarised Photochromatic Lens that offers protection and clarity in most climatic conditions and has helped my customers who spend a lot of time behind the wheel, or who sail, or who fly aeroplanes. 

In average sunlight conditions, the lenses turn to a copper red, in bright sunlight the lenses develop a deep brown colour. In low daylight, the lenses have a High Contrast green / yellow hue.
