How to choose sunglasses that will improve your driving

Published on: 11 January 2018

One of the easiest things to do to update your style is to pick out a pair of sunglasses - one perfect fit and you’re ready to hit the streets with your fresh style! However, did you know that picking the right pair of sun glasses doesn’t only protect your eyes from harmful UV rays but can even improve your driving experience!

Sunglasses can both enhance your vision and assist with protecting you, the driver from extreme brightness which may distract you and result in an accident.

  • Seeing the world through rose-tinted lenses…
    How extreme sunlight reaches into your eyes is determined by different coloured lenses therefore choosing the wrong sun glasses impacts your sight and driving negatively.

    Pink, blue, or green lenses are known to make red lights unclear as a result it is advisable not to wear them while driving.

    Neutral-coloured lenses such as grey and brown are suitable to wear while driving because they don’t affect the appearance of colours.

    Amber-toned lenses actually enhance contrast and definition, and therefore sunglasses designed specifically for driving use these lenses.
  • The right tint can enhance your vision
    Polarised sunglasses reduce strain on the eyes caused by bright light reflecting off wet surfaces. Polarised lenses are great for driving in foggy or misty weather conditions because they enhance and sharpen details.
  • Protect your eyes
    Visit an optometrist at least every two years and have your eyes tested. Your sunglasses may require prescription lenses – and seeing clearly will definitely improve your driving!

So now you have the perfect pair of sunglasses… but what happens if they’re damaged or stolen? While MiWay can't prevent this from happening, we can cover your expensive accessories under our MiMovables, or all risk insurance cover.
