DRIVING WITH LOW VISION
Driving With Bioptic Telescopes
This is one of the most frequent questions our eye doctor receives from his low vision patients. Driving is an integral part of our independence, going shopping, visiting grandkids, or just driving to socialize with your friends.
People with low vision all of a sudden become reliant on family and friends which puts them in a situation where they feel they are burdening others and are limited in their lifestyle options.
The good news is that the state of Dr. YESnick allows for driving with Bioptic telescopes if the driver meets the vision requirements with the Bioptics.
Since central vision loss effects the drivers ability to see small objects such as traffic lights or stop signs, which can limit their ability to drive safely. The concept of Bioptics is take small binocular telescopes which magnify the smaller objects by tilting your head to see.
The first step in determining if bioptics are right for you is to set up a 10 minute free phone consultation with our eye doctor. Our eye doctor will ask a series of questions to determine if this is the right solution for you.
This step is important as our eye doctor wants to help patients find the best solution that will work for their needs.
After the consultation, if you have been determined to be eligible for bioptic telescope glasses you will set up an appointment for a full low vision eye exam. During the eye exam our eye doctor will talk with you about your options, the process of training, and the path to getting back on the road.
During the low vision eye exam, Dr. YESnick will assess your current visual performance, your desired visual performance, and evaluate what kind of telescope lenses will provide a solution for your needs. Our patients feel that bioptic telescopes and the regained independence from driving again, have provided them with a fresh start.
