Prescription driving lenses

Do you struggle with glare when driving using your standard lenses in tougher light conditions?

Experience a reduction of reflections and uncomfortable glare with lenses optimised for your vision needs behind the wheel.

Glasses lenses for driving help us see better, in turn increasing road safety.

Studies indicate that a great number of drivers have poor vision. Poor vision causes road accidents and an up to date eye test, combined with a pair of prescription driving lenses, will help to reduce the chances of the wearer being involved in a road collision. Regular eye tests are essential for all drivers.

What are driving lenses?

If you are looking for the best lenses for driving, driving lenses have been developed to benefit wearers who struggle with standard lenses while in a vehicle during more challenging light conditions. We supply Zeiss DriveSafe, Essilor Road Pilot, Hoya EnRoute and Transitions® DriveWear® lenses.

Are all driving lenses the same?

All driving lenses are designed to improve clarity when driving a vehicle in challenging light conditions. The anti-reflective coatings applied to these lenses help to reduce glare, which leads to more light reaching the eye. This results in sharper and clearer vision.

Can you buy varifocal driving lenses?

Absolutely. Zeiss, Essilor and Hoya have developed the varifocal (progressive) lenses in their driving lens range to have enhanced distance and intermediate zones. This means that you will have excellent vision when switching between the dashboard, instrument panels and the road ahead. Please note that the reading area on all driving varifocals is smaller than a standard varifocal lens.
