HA! Over the years, whenever I would feel that I can't focus
properly (distance or closeup) I do some eye exercises that
the campus doctor recommended for me when I was in university.
I'm the only relative among 14 cousins, and now 8 younger 2nd
cousins, that doesn't need reading glasses. My aunts, uncles,
and members of my own family started to need glasses in their
30s. This can't be a magic gene. I am convinced that the
exercises have maintained my good eyesight.

I've never tried the clear blu-blockers for night driving.
Normally, there is a bit of glare from oncoming headlights.
The glasses are polarized, so the glare may reduce that.

But a micro-pitted windshield on an older vehicle can also
contribute to glare.

I'm looking to get another pair so that I don't have to lug
the single pair between my shop and home. They are an
inexpensive solution (my pair were about $35 after shipping)
for dry eyes from extended LCD screen viewing (even for
evening TV) and you get your sleep back.
