Eyesight for driving test

Posted , 4 users are following.

Hello,

I wear glasses currently and recently had to push back my driving test as when i attempted to read a number plate from 20.5m i wasn't able to make it out. I've since been back to the opticians and had another eye test where they said their was only a slight difference in subscription and i should be well within driving regulation but i have since brought the new lenses and the problem still persists?

If anyone has had simmilar trouble or has any advice on what it ould be or what i could do I would be grateful

Many Thanks

    Hi lloyd

    ​Have you thought about going to eye casualty at an eye hospital for a more thorough eye examination?

      Hi Good advice as well. This happened to me but not in relation to driving etc. The prescrption was wrong, much weaker than the usual normal for me anyway prescription. I got a refund and went elsewhere.

      Hello no i have never been to one or thought of it tbh with you. When I went to the opticians it was a year after I'd had them tested and they just said there was little change?

    i have never had that problem except when i went to the eye doctor.  i went to the eye doctor and asked him not to dilate my eyes, i had to go get a new license.

    low and behold he did and i didn't realize it.  The girl kept telling me to read and i could not see anything.  The girl must have noticed the yellowish stuff in my eyes that she just gave it to me. Are you lenses bi focals ?  Wish i could help you sorry
