Maureen Lewis was driving from her home in rural Pennsylvania to the University of North Carolina to see her son David graduate. It had been almost a year since she’d seen him.
Maureen worked as a nurse and had finished her shift at 6 p.m., but she was determined to be there for David’s ceremony, so she decided to drive through the night.
At 3:15 a.m., David woke up to the sound of his cell phone ringing. When the man started talking, David heard a horrible story.
On the last leg of the trip, Maureen started coming down a long winding hill. As she rounded a corner a large truck with bright LED lights blinded her, causing her to misjudge the angle of the road. She ended up going off the road. The car flipped and rolled down the hill, crashing into a large tree.
Maureen Lewis died five miles from her son’s apartment.
Three years later, David Lewis has committed his life to making sure that no one else has to suffer the same nightmare. Putting his engineering degree to good use, he has created glasses that reduce glare to improve driving ability at night.
Within the last year, David’s ClearSight Night Glasses have sold to hundreds of thousands of people across the world. The revolutionary anti-glare glasses dim and reduce the blur that pollutes drivers’ vision at night from oncoming headlights, street lamps, and flashing traffic lights.
