Blinded by the Light? Vision Problems and Visual Discomfort Make Driving in the Dark Difficult, Uncomfortable for Most Americans
Date:10/29/2007

uld improve their vision while driving in the dark.

"Any vision problem left uncorrected or under-corrected can result in tragic consequences for drivers, passengers, and pedestrians," notes Dr. Brisco. "A comprehensive eye exam will include testing to diagnose potential problems and determine the correct form of treatment, such as a new pair of glasses or contact lenses."

Other findings from the survey, which assessed attitudes, perceptions, practices and experiences with driving in low-light conditions included the following:

-- One-fifth (21 percent) of respondents report blurred distance vision

during low-light conditions, while a smaller number (5 percent) say

they have some blurriness and difficulty in seeing the dashboard or

dials

-- Women (70 percent) are significantly more likely than men (49 percent)

to say that they have difficulty seeing or experience visual discomfort

when driving in the dark

-- Only talking on the phone or text messaging (29 percent) was

considered to be more distracting than having trouble seeing or

experiencing visual discomfort (27 percent) while driving in the dark

-- Americans in the 18-49 age bracket were significantly more likely than

those age 50 and older to report having difficulty driving in the dark

all or most of the time (36 percent vs. 20 percent).

-- Sedan and sports car drivers report having a harder time spotting

animals or pedestrians than SUV and truck drivers (24 percent vs. 18

percent).

Because of their feelings of discomfort behind the wheel under low-light conditions, about one quarter (24%) of Americans say that they ask someone else to drive when it is dark. Others alter their driving habits by driving more slowly than usual (42 percent) or traveling in familiar areas or on well-lit roads (30 percent). Women and parents of children under age 18 are significantly
