Glare occurs when too much light enters the eye and the eye cannot handle it all. It can be annoying and sometimes dangerous. The different types of glare include distracting glare, discomforting glare, disabling glare, and blinding glare.

Car lights or even sunshine can be too bright and dangerous sometimes. The brightness can be a distraction or even cause temporary loss of sight. Some ways to protect yourself are to wear spectacles with polarised lenses or lenses with anti-reflex coating.

When light is reflected on your TV or computer screen while you are watching, it can be discomforting and lead to eye strain. Try to position your screen in a way that avoids the reflection of light from the screen to your eyes. An example would be to sit with the screen facing away from a window. You can also get screen guard covers for computers and mobile devices to minimise glare.

Whether you are at home, at work or on the road, take precautions to protect your eyes from any glare. Keep your vision clear because how you see matters.
