love wearing glasses

Many drivers who wear glasses no longer enjoy driving. They experience fatigue on longer journeys, lack confidence in busy situations and actively avoid driving at night.

If you are wearing ordinary, general purpose glasses for driving you may not be seeing the whole picture. You are probably suffering from glare. You likely have to be closer to road signs than ideal before you can read them. Maybe you are missing things in your periphery. Chances are you get anxious at the idea of overtaking because you're not quite sure if you have enough room to get past. Or how about that parking space? Can you squeeze in there?"

  • We hear of passengers feeling nervous because the driver missed a turning when they didn't see the sign.

  • Have you ever felt the tension build in your shoulders because you're gripping the wheel tighter and tighter as you concentrate in busy traffic?

  • Poor driver's vision is a factor in 2900 Road Traffic Accidents every year on UK roads 

  • 3 out of 5 motorists feel affected by poor vision behind he wheel.

  • More than 15% of road collisions involve a driver with substandard vision.

  • 73% of drivers report that they have experienced visual discomfort from the glare of oncoming headlights.

We believe you deserve clear, comfortable vision when you're driving. We believe a relaxed, confident driver is a safe driver

Robert Callander FBDO is the UK's leading expert in Driver's Eyewear and a self-declared Petrol-Head. 

As both a Qualified Optician and a car enthusiast with 35 years experience as both a driver and an optician, I have experienced just about every situation you're ever likely to meet on the road 

In my last job, before I opened this practice, I was driving about 50000 miles per year around Scotland, Northern Ireland and down to the office in Kent. Today I have family in Aberdeen and Newcastle so I still regularly cover over 200 miles in a day.

But this isn't about me. It's about YOU and YOUR vision while driving. 

My point is, I have the optical knowledge and the driving experience to help you. Allow me to be your guide

By considering these Five Critical Factors of Driver's Eyewear we can make driving a pleasure for you again.

 3) Improved low-light and night vision through a combination of contrast enhancing filters and specifically tuned coatings. 

4) Safer judgment of Speed and Distance through 3-D optimised lens pairs. 

5) Perfectly fitted, lightweight, unobtrusive frames that keep out of your way and let you get on with driving.
