What Is The Worst Vision You Can Have To Pass A Driving Test
Check your state:
"visual acuity screening standard is 20/40 or better with both eyes together, no worse than 20/70 in the poorer eye. Drivers who fail the vision screening are referred to a vision specialist.
Drivers with visual acuity of 20/200 or worse may not be licensed to drive. Drivers may use bioptic telescopes for driving, but may not use them to meet the vision standard". ...Read more
Varies by State: Most states set a limit of 20/40 in the best eye for their limit. There is some variation by each state. Check with your department of motor vehicles for the rules in your state. ...Read more
Stable Glaucoma. Recently thought could be peripheral vision Ioss driving. 3 recent field tests show no change. Dr.has no explaination. Am I paranoid?
Not paranoid: All with eye disease worry about losing sight. While most glaucoma can be managed with little or no loss, some do go out of control. Your ophthalmologist (you are not seeing an optometrist for this I hope?) did three fields with no loss. This is strong evidence of good control and you are on a good medication (Cosopt). Stick with this and express your fears to your doctor on next visit. ...Read more
Visual field test normal w/minimal peripheral vision loss. After diagnosed w/glaucoma feel more nervous driving such as changing lanes. Psychological?
Glaucoma in 1 eye. 30% nerve damage w/"normal" field of vision test reading. How much peripheral would be lost before it affects driving?
Epiretinal membrane in 1 eye & cataracts in both. Are there any tests to determine which condition is likely causing glare & hazy vision when driving?
ERM & Cataracts: Epiretinal membranes (ERM) can affect central vision. A PAM (Potential Acuity Meter) can determine if it is just the cataract affecting general vision or the ERM. If ERM small, might still have 20/20 with PAM. Brightness acuity test (BAT): generally tells us how bad the cataract is. OCT (optical coherence tomography) tells us how significant ERM is. Frustration is in fact: still no guarantee which ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Have ur eyes checked: Tunnel vision is not a good sign of visual health. So if it is occurring at night, you should see your eye doctor, and have your visual fields checked. Also, it may be an indicator of your circulation to your eyes. Be sure to have your blood pressure checked morning and night, to make sure your pressure isn't low at night. See your doctor soon. ...Read more
Vision problem only when driving. Bright LED lights appear to have a shaky ghost image right above it.?
Don't drive: You should meet your state requirements for driving eligibility. There are telescopes built into lenses which can allow you to see better on a visual chart but these limit the peripheral vision which is critical for driving and they are dangerous. Consider the danger you place yourself and others if you try to drive with vision not meeting the standard. ...Read more
Mild muscle weakness: Most common explanation would be a slight misalignment of the eyes when tired. This kind of double vision should go away when you close either eye. Other possible causes would not go away when one eye is closed. A type of glasses lens called prism may be able to help this symptom. You should be seen by an eye md for diagnosis and treatment recommendations. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Less light scatter: Glare is caused by scattering of light before it enters the eye. Anti-glare lenses filter certain wave lengths of light, resulting in a more uniform beam of light entering the eye. Yellow or amber tints are best. ...Read more
Yes: Mono vision depending on the disparity in vision between the two eyes can be a definite cause ifa drop in depth perception. You can test this put by comparing with contacts vs glasses by taking the stereo fly test. You might be under corrected and this is causing night myopia. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Please explain why is there a delay in my vision when driving since getting bilateral vestibular hypo function?
How come I see purple flashes of light in my vision at night when I'm driving? It happens sometimes during the day also. Any idea what causes that?
Get checked: You need to make sure it is not a retinal tear developing. ...Read more
I have been having side by side double vision mainly when driving or watching tv for 3-4 years. Have had prisms put in glasses 2 times now & sometime?
When you look at a distance, the in-turning muscles relax, the out-turning muscles tighten. In your case, the out-turning muscles are week- could be medical side-effect, stroke effect, decompensated eye crossing, other neurologic disorder.
If the amount of prisms becomes excessive, have eye muscle surgery.
Contac a "pediatric" ophthalmologist who does a lot of muscle surgery. ...Read more
