Recent changes to the DVLA’s medical standards mean that is it now more important than ever to ensure that your vision meets the correct requirements.
As a driver, you are legally required to be able to read a number plate from a distance of 20.5 metres and to wear your corrective prescription eyewear at all times when driving.
Make sure that you don’t get caught out when it comes to driving. At Space Healthcare our opticians will ensure that your prescription is correct, up-to-date and will answer any queries you may have about driving and the law.
Our tips for driving and the law:
- Have your vision checked at least every two years
- Keep a spare pair of glasses in your car (In Europe, you have to by law)
- Keep a pair of prescription sunglasses in the car to combat bright sunlight, especially in the winter when the sun is low.
- Carry a glasses cleaning kit in your car so you can keep your lenses dust free
