Does the optician need to know if I drive?

Answer: 

Your lifestyle, occupation and hobbies might influence your prescription and the type of lens and frame that are dispensed.

For example a driver who does a great deal of night driving might benefit from using antireflection coated lenses.

It's always a good idea to mention this to your optician as they will be able to give you this option.
