Yellow-lens Night-driving Glasses Did Not Improve Visibility, Reduce Headlight Glare
Yellow-lens night-driving glasses were found to be ineffective in improving pedestrian detection at night or reducing the negative association between headlight glare and pedestrian detection performance, revealed study published in JAMA Ophthalmology.

Study findings do not appear to support having eye care professionals advise patients to use yellow-lens night-driving glasses.
