Are you confident about your driving vision? In order to be classed as a safe driver, your visual sharpness (acuity), along with your overlapping fields of view and perception of depth must be ensured. All driving requires good vision, as you will need to be able to judge the potential hazards and safely navigate your own vehicle as well as other road users.
When you apply for a driver’s licence you will be prompted to declare any factors which may impede your ability to drive safely, including any vision problems. This includes any eye diseases or refractive errors. If you are concerned about your vision, it’s a good idea to visit your optometrist for your personal safety and that of others. Hope Island Optical provides quality optical examinations, as well as driving assessments to safely get you on the road.
