It’s well known that driving at night is riskier than driving in the daylight. If you have less than perfect eyesight, it further raises the risk.
A dirty windshield and faulty headlights aren’t always to blame. Struggling to see at night can be caused by a range of factors, including:
- Vitamin A deficiency
- Glaucoma and medicines that are used to treat it
If you’ve been previously diagnosed with nearsightedness, the solution could be as simple as updating your glasses or prescription. Anti-reflection coatings on lenses can also help you cope. But in other cases, quick fixes are harder to come by. The first thing you should do if you are concerned about your vision at night is to reach out to a professional to diagnose the issue. A simple exam and conversation can help them suggest proper treatment.
