"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
