Tried and Tested: Carl Zeiss Vision DriveSafe PAL

DriveSafe lens put through its paces during an all night race track event

Glare, visibility in low light conditions and switching between near and distant objects are some of the major concerns surrounding night driving.

A recent report suggested nearly a third of drivers refuse to drive at night because of the associated visual stress and discomfort. Carl Zeiss’s DriveSafe lens is aimed directly at those issues.

Optician’s editor recently took part in a 24-hour cycle challenge which provided the ideal opportunity to try DriveSafe’s anti-glare performance. The lens variant on test was a progressive photofusion version of DriveSafe with a silver mirror coating.
