Most spectacle wearers are also car drivers and experience discomfort or vision impairment when it gets dark, rainy or misty. The disproportionately large number of traffic accidents after nightfall shows their concerns are justified. 83% of spectacle wearers use cars and the vast majority (72%) of them are interested in having a single pair of spectacles to provide an everyday solution that can also cope with the special challenges of driving. Car-driving spectacle wearers feel discomfort, especially in rain (94%), at dusk (88%), at night (76%) and in fog (74%)[1].
