I have bad glare at night from the headlights of oncoming cars. It makes it difficult to drive. Any suggestions on what can reduce my glare?
There are many variables in your brief question so let me answer it this way: Glare at night can be increased by many things including, but not limited to, scratched or dirty eyeglasses, out-of-date eye glasses, excessive oil in tear film that coats contact lenses, contact lenses that are out of date, ocular inflammation, cataracts, abnormal corneal curvature, corneal scars, various medical conditions, and many other problems. I suggest that you consult your ophthalmologist (Eye M.D.) for a comprehensive eye examination and analysis specific to your eye condition.
