Old eyes

Recommended Posts

I don't remember ever having my eyes examined. Did that yesterday and shocked the Optometrist.

She said if I don't get glasses NOW I could loose my driving privileges.

Does anyone know how good or bad this prescription is?

Sorry about the sideways view.

Good enough to cross the street.

Hope they look good on you.

I have no idea, but would take her advice, you will know how bad they are as soon as you put them on.

Not bad at all. My left eye is -15.0. I fear wearing my glasses on a sunny day. If the sun hit the lens at the right angle it could turn my head into a charcoal briquette!

I suggest you find an optometrist who is less prone to hyperbole.  If she is startled by those numbers, you would do well to get another exam by someone more professional.

 

If you can pass the eyesight exam at the DMV, you can see well enough to drive.

As a person who rides motorcycles and bicycles on the very same roads that you drive, I request that you correct your vision to the greatest extent possible.

Yes Sir. Now if just everyone that has great vision used their eyes for Driving and Not cell phone scanning we’d be on to something -

Well, you should certainly see more clearly in the distance with the glasses on, especially with your left eye.  Didn’t the optometrist demonstrate the prescription???  In most states there is a minimum visual acuity requirement and, if demonstrated in one eye, it is accepted.  That said, I have always maintained that a person should have the best possible acuity for driving, especially at night.  Without glasses, I imagine you have done fairly well around the house since the myopia in the left eye should be giving you decent near vision while your right eye can let you see across the room (some folks have done this intentionally with contact lenses).  
 

If you get glasses, and plan to use them at night, consider adding a reflection free coating.  It is amazingly effective for glare reduction.

 

What was your uncorrected visual acuity?

A must have for any glasses...

And if you require sunglasses, there are options.

I moved to another state and had to get a new drivers license, I told the clerk I forgot my glasses before taking the eye exam. He stated it wouldn't matter. I passed.
