Winter driving can be tricky, but when driving in ice and snow it's important to keep a regular check on eyes, as much as your car. Many people don't realise how much the winter conditions can affect their eyes so it's important to see your optician if you have any concerns or questions, as well to get the best lenses suited for winter driving. Be extra careful in icy-conditions because your tyres might skid and make sure your fog lights, air-con, and brakes are all in perfect condition to suit bad weather conditions.
