Can Transitions Drivewear be used at night?

Hello, and welcome to my blog! Today I'm going to answer a question that I get asked a lot: Can Transitions Drivewear be used at night? And if not, what works best?

Transitions Drivewear are lenses that adapt to changing light conditions, from bright sunlight to overcast and low-light situations. They are designed to enhance your vision and contrast in different driving environments whether it's sunny, cloudy, or rainy.. They also block 100% of UVA and UVB rays, which can damage your eyes over time.

But can you use them at night? The short answer is no. Transitions Drivewear is not suitable for night driving, because they are activated by both visible and UV light. They also don't react to artificial light sources, such as headlights or street lamps. This means that they will remain dark even in low-light conditions, such as at night or in a tunnel. This can reduce your visibility and make it harder to see traffic signals, road signs, pedestrians, and other hazards.

So what works best for night driving? Well, there are a few options that you can consider. One is to use clear lenses with an anti-reflective coating, which can reduce glare and improve clarity. You can also choose lenses that have a blue-light filter, which can help reduce eye strain and fatigue caused by digital devices. Another is to use yellow-tinted lenses, which can enhance contrast and brightness in dim light. However, these lenses may also distort colors and make it harder to see red lights. A third option is to use light colored polarized lenses, which can filter out horizontal glare from headlights and streetlights. However, these lenses may also reduce the visibility of some digital displays, such as GPS or dashboard instruments.

The best option for you may depend on your personal preference, your eye condition, and your driving habits. You should consult with your eye doctor before choosing any lenses for night driving, as they can advise you on what is best for your vision and safety. Remember, no lens can guarantee perfect vision at night, so you should always drive carefully and follow the road rules.

So remember, Transitions Drivewear are great for daytime driving, but not for night driving. Always switch to clear lenses when the sun goes down and drive safely!
