The term beer goggles is often applied when an individual makes advances towards somebody who is deemed less attractive. ‘Beer goggles’ are thought to distort your vision making someone appear more beautiful after consuming alcohol.
Now the DIA have got involved and really do offer beer goggles. The Vision Impairment Goggles they sell are meant to simulate the effects of being over the drink-drive limit. They are meant to show drivers the effects drinking can have on perception, distance and peripheral vision, as all these things are reduced if you drink and drive.
Those that have worn the goggles were surprised at how difficult it was to perform basic tasks and their message is don’t drink and drive.
