A driver training specialist has warned that drivers should have their eyes tested on a regular basis to ensure they are continuing to drive legally. Do you have your eyes tested often?
The warning comes from Simon Elstow, head of driver training at IAM Drive & Survive, who says that eyesight changes for the worst as a person gets older and good eyesight was essential for safe driving. Therefore motorists should have regular checks to make sure. He also says that motorists who find it especially difficult to handle night vision and the glare from headlights should avoid driving in the dark if at all possible.
He gives other advice too, such as keeping headlights and mirrors clean but, his main advice is to check your eyesight. If you haven’t, don’t assume it is fine, book an appointment and get it checked out professionally.
