Is your vision good enough to drive?

Driving & Vision

To meet the legal vision standard to drive you must be able to read a car number plate from 20 metres away. Have you checked that you can do this since you passed your driving test? Your vision changes all throughout your life and it is important that you ensure that your vision remains good enough to drive. Having a routine eye test allows your Optometrist to check your level of vision and eye health to make sure that you still meet the driving standards.

Currently, drivers are tested on their sight before their driving test by being asked to read a car number plate, at a distance of 20 metres. If they need glasses or contact lenses to pass this test, they are required to wear them for driving. A driver must also notify the Driver and Vehicle Licensing Agency (DVLA) if they have certain eye or general medical conditions, or if they are advised by an optometrist or a medical practitioner that they should no longer drive. Once a driver reaches the age of 70, the DVLA requires them to declare whether they are fit to drive every three years.

Wearing the right glasses to help your vision in poor lighting whilst night driving and having anti-glare coatings put on your glasses can all help to optimise your driving vision. Call in to book an eye test or get a leaflet on “Driving & Vision.”

Back to school eye tests for children

Good eyesight is crucial in making sure a child develops to their full potential both at school and socially.  It’s especially important to look after children’s eyes – the eye is still developing throughout early childhood so if problems are treated early, it can make a lasting difference. Yet research shows that around 20% of school-aged children have an undiagnosed vision problem (1). It’s never too early to have a sight test, visiting an optometrist will mean you can spot and manage vision problems that may affect your child’s development.

How do I know if my child has an eye problem?

Some eye conditions do not display any signs or symptoms, so the only way to know for sure is to take your child for a sight test. Signs which may show there is a problem with a child’s sight include:

  • An eye appearing to drift inwards or outwards
  • Difficulty concentrating
  • Behavioural problems
  • Headaches
  • Sitting too close to the television
  • Frequent eye rubbing

Eye tests are FREE for all children under 16 and 16-18 year olds in full time education.
