VISION & DRIVING

 

At M S Kalsi Opticians we can recommended organizations that have a Visual Field Analyzer to perform peripheral vision tests, which are recognized by the DVLA.

Recent figures suggest one in three people in the UK are taking to the roads without having regular sight tests. Furthermore, one in ten drivers fail to meet the legal minimum visual standard. Patients suffering from conditions such as glaucoma have a legal obligation to inform the DVLA of their circumstances and must have regular tests to ensure that their vision is good enough.
