How well do you see, it doesn’t always seem easy does it? Driving to many is a just an occupational hazard getting to and from work, driving for a living, or the school run. However it is vital that vision is clear and comfortable when behind the wheel. We all know how much traffic there is on the roads these days. Driving safely is important so we are able to anticipate any problems. That said it’s important also to realise how much technology we use within the car, such as satellite navigation systems and digital display dashboards which create a further demand on your vision. Spectacle lens technology is ever evolving and it’s essential you get the best advice about what is right for your visual needs. For instance, good varifocals these days will encompass a much wider range for vision than those of previous decades. Couple that with amazing coatings which help to reduce glare especially at night can help to reduce eyestrain and fatigue, giving sharper vision particularly when driving at night time. Visual fatigue can be induced from driving when your eyes are focussing ahead then back into the cab and then back to the dashboard and glancing into the rear-view mirror gives us differing degrees of reflections and perceived glare to cope with. Zeiss have a Drive Safe lens for safe and reliable driving, which during tests revealed 83% of drivers who wear spectacles feel safer and more comfortable when driving in poor lighting conditions. The extra advantage or Zeiss’ frame Fit technology further enhances the benefits of the Drive Safe lenses. These new lenses also have a luminance design technology taking into account the pupil size in low light conditions. The lens incorporates up 43% larger mid zone for easy focus switch between mid distance and dashboard and mirrors. There is also a 14% larger far zone area for a wider view of the road. The best thing is they can be made in varifocal format as well as ordinary single vision. If you want to know more about any of these benefits please call Walbank Opticians on 023 8089 2969. Hampshire County Council supports people in the community of all ages by providing transport for adults and children under the care of Hampshire County Council. The adults are driven to day centres and children taken to school or respite centres. The service relies on a teamof volunteer drivers who use their own cars to provide the transport, but in order to maintain the level of service, additional volunteers are being sought. The only criteria is to have your own car and good driving skills, enjoy working with people and have good communication and listening skills. All drivers are reimbursed a mileage rate. If you could help by offering a few hours of voluntary driving for those without their own transport, call the Community Transport and Contracts Team on 01962 845184 or email: community.transport@ hants.gov.uk Volunteer Car Drivers Needed
