Driving glasses

Driving glasses are glasses with an anti-reflective coating to eliminate glare from street lights or headlights, often worn at night, though driving sunglasses are also available. Anti-glare driving glasses such as the tinted yellow driving glasses usually don’t require a prescription, though it’s also possible to find prescription driving glasses, which may be especially useful for people with myopia.
