Last night we had supper with friends to celebrate a birthday. I offered to drive so that P could enjoy a few glasses of fizz with the others. I don't touch alcohol if I am driving. He usually drives if we go out at night as, although my eyesight is generally good, my night vision is poor following my cataract surgery.
It is only a 20 minute drive to our friends' house but it is all on unlit, winding country roads and in the dark I find the headlights from oncoming vehicles tend to blind me.
Last night we stayed quite late and, although the nights are usually very short up here at this time of year, yesterday had been very overcast and gloomy. I found the journey home to be a little challenging and was grateful that the roads were very quiet, being close to midnight on a Wednesday.
P always says he is happy to drive when we go out at night but I am not comfortable being a passenger with someone who has had a few glasses of wine. I have tried those anti glare glasses for driving but they just make it worse. They probably are more effective if you are driving where there are street lights as, otherwise, they make everything much too dark to see properly.
If anyone has any tips on how to combat headlight glare, please share!
