ZEISS at Telford Opticians, making golden hour driving enjoyable.
Golden hour – What a fantastic time to take the perfect, glowing photo! Those beautiful golden rays offer a natural filter effect that many photographers, hikers and influencers wait around all day for.
However, for drivers, this period can be one of the most challenging times of the day and makes many of us want to avoid the road altogether.
Those stunning golden rays can quickly turn into a blinding hazard, particularly when reflected off wet surfaces.
*Enter ZEISS Anti-Glare Lenses*
What are anti-glare lenses?
Anti-glare lenses, are lenses designed with a special coating to reduce reflections and glare, for a more comfortable visual experience. These coatings are applied to the front and back surfaces of your lenses, allowing more light to pass through and therefore improving the overall clarity of your vision.
Why choose ZEISS for our Anti-Glare Lenses
ZEISS offer anti-glare lenses called DriveSafe. These lenses are specifically designed to meet the visual needs of drivers by reducing glare and reflections caused by headlights, lampposts and other obstacles. ZEISS commit a great deal of time into extensive research and continuously explore new technologies to ensure you have only the very best visual experience.
They have two options for you to choose from:
Single Vision – Lenses designed for driving, but also suitable for every day wearing.
Progressive Vision – These allow for a more focused view when changing from the road, to the dashboard and mirrors. The near viewing zone also make these ideal for every day use.
Benefits of Anti-Glare
Through minimising reflections on the lens surface, the anti-glare coating allows you to wear your same great glasses, for clear vision, with the added benefit of protection against glare and unwanted reflections.
Reduced Eye Strain
These lenses can alleviate eye strain, improving focus on the road and reducing the likelihood of headaches caused by eye strain.
The extra coating from the anti-glare means your lenses have an extra layer of protection against scratches and damage. Therefore, if you take care of them, your lenses should last you even longer.
Elimination of Halos and Glare
We may not be able to shift the traffic, but we can make waiting in it a bit more comfortable! Halos and flares around lights, especially during dark hours, are significantly reduced with reflection-free lenses. Therefore, waiting behind brake lights won’t be as jarring during your early morning/ late evening commute.
It’s always a good idea to talk through your options with your optician to ensure you’re making the right decision for your individual needs, ensuring you get the most out of your eye wear.
