One tip to combat eye strain and fatigue while driving is to take breaks along the way so

that provide 100 percent protection against ultraviolet rays.
Further, reduce glare by wearing sunglasses with polarized,
brown-tinted, or mirror-coated lenses. For those needing correction,
keep in mind that prescription sunglasses are available and
are another great way to reduce eye strain and fatigue.
