Steering Drivers in the Right Direction, "Healthy Vision™ With Dr. Val Jones" Radio Show Offers Information, Advice About Driving in the Dark

JACKSONVILLE, Fla., Nov. 1, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- When you are behind the wheel of a car, your eyes are constantly on the move – looking at vehicles ahead and to the side, reading road traffic signs, checking your rear view mirrors, and shifting your gaze inside and outside your vehicle in order to check the speedometer, look at your global navigation system, or change a radio station.

"When you don't see as well, you have to get closer or drive slower, and if you don't account for that need for extra time or distance, then you are putting yourself and others at risk for accidents and close calls."  

While 73 percent of respondents believe that correcting their vision problems could improve their night time driving, only 27 percent have ever cons
