Are your eyes roadworthy?

driving-glasses

In light of recent research Ian was asked on to BBC Radio Scotland’s John Beattie Show to discuss driving and vision.

One of the statistics that stood out for us was that a worrying one in eight drivers who know they need glasses or lenses to drive, have driven without them in the past year. This could well be higher and it would be very easy to nip out and forget your glasses. We have a simple solution. Contact lenses.

We would suggest that if you need glasses for driving, you probably have difficulty seeing all manner of things on a daily basis, maybe you struggle to read the number of the bus you’re waiting to catch or the players on a rugby pitch. If you’re reluctant to wear your glasses fulltime perhaps you should consider trialling contact lenses to allow you to see clearly at all times?

There are still many misconceptions about contact lenses, in particular people who believe they would still have to wear reading glasses but nowadays there are lenses for almost everyone, even those who require varifocal lenses.

If you want to ensure that you aren’t that person who takes the risk on the roads, please ask about contact lenses at your next appointment.
