How I'm Improving My Night Driving Confidence

This post is sponsored by EyePromise. All opinions are my own

Most of you know…I am optimistic, joyful, and confront the challenges of aging head on.  However, I will confess, the moments I curse aging the most are when I am behind the wheel of my car at night.  I can remember the exact conversation I had with my ophthalmologist around age 55.  I was convinced he had a prescription or a way to help me see better at night.
Sadly, all he said was…”You are getting older and this is what happens.”  That conversation was around six years ago and the situation has only become worse.  Before I accept an invitation after dark (that involves my car), I chart the course and make sure I can return home on a safe path.  I always worry about not seeing someone jogging on the street, and there are many who do around my neighborhood.  Every now and then, I have a moment where a blur runs by and I realize I did not see them.  It is sobering and frightening.  While I wish everyone wore reflective gear, some do not.
If you combine my aging eyesight with the fact I am working online most of the day (between the magazines I edit and my blog), I am constantly concerned about my eyesight.  This is why I was excited to learn about EyePromise Vizual Edge, which can help protect against glare and sensitivity to bright lights.

Here is what I have learned so far:
EyePromise Vizual Edge is an advanced, high-quality formula containing the highest level of dietary Zeaxanthin and other essential ingredients to both protect and improve your eye health.  Zeaxanthin (zee-uh-zan-thin), is the primary pigment in the macula in the back of the eye, which improves and protects your central vision. This is all information I did not know and I found it interesting to learn.  Thicker or more “dense” macular pigment is like having “internal sunglasses” that protect and enhance your vision. It also reduces glare from harsh lights from oncoming traffic, as well as improves contrast to notice all movements and details on and off the road.
Not only does this powerful formula improve your night driving confidence, but it also helps to improve your overall eye health, by supporting the natural function of the eye. The formula also helps fight against Age-Related Macular Degeneration (AMD), the most common cause of blindness in people over 55.

After watching the video below, I was convinced it is time to give EyePromise a try.  I am going to work and remain active as long as possible… and night driving is a reality in my world of events. I will do whatever I can to not miss out because of poor eyesight.

  1. Hi Pam, this is such a great product. Almost four years ago my eye doctor measured my macula through a super simple non-invasive test. It measured 28, I believe the number it should have been was 48. At 62 my macula was thinning significantly. He gave me Eye Promise vitamins and each year measures my macula at my examination. The his past April it was 53, I am in the normal range.
    These vitamins are truely a God send. Certain people are more at risk. I grew up in southern Florida, a blue-eyed blond. Blue eyes have a higher risk. Great job on putting out this information.
    Love your blog and wish you all the best this year. The only problem I have is, I live to far to visit your San Antonio Goodwill😥, I totally am envious of all your great finds.


Thanks so much for joining in our conversation today! I appreciate your time and love hearing from you!
