Default Pro drivers never wear glasses

I notice that the pro drivers and the good driver usually dont have eye glasses...

do you think rc drivers have a big advantage when they dont wear glasses?

I know it sounds stupid!!!))))

Maybe that's why Scott hughes retired


But you might be somewhat correct. Most of the fast locals around me seem to have laser vision.

contacts give much better side to side vision (peripheral) then most glasses plus allow you to wear sunglasses and goggles.You rarely see any professional athletes who need superior vision wearing glasses in competition.I have both and rarely if ever wear glasses when competing because of the limited vision
