Vision

If you need to wear glasses or contact lenses for driving, remember to:

Always wear them when you drive, even if you are only going a short distance. If your driver's license or medical card says you must wear corrective lenses and don't, you could be placed out of service or receive a citation if stopped by law enforcement.

Try to keep an extra pair of glasses in your vehicle. If your regular glasses get broken or lost, you can still drive safely and legally.

Don't wear dark glasses or tinted contact lenses at night, even if it is to help with the glare. The problem is that they shut out too much light - light you need to see clearly.

You should have your checked every year or two by an eye specialist. Your eye specialist checks more than just you vision, they are often the first to detect illnesses such as high blood pressure or diabetes.
