You must be able to see properly to drive. Drivers with glaucoma may have reduced peripheral vision, difficulties with headlights and glare, and slower reactions. Drivers with reduced peripheral vision are at increased risk of crashing. They may not see pedestrians stepping onto the road, or other cars close by in traffic.
Most drivers with glaucoma are still able to drive safely. At Glaucoma Care, we understand the importance of driving for our patients’ independence and lifestyle. To maintain a Victorian drivers licence, drivers with glaucoma must complete a VICRoads assessment regularly. At Glaucoma Care, we can perform the relevant tests and help drivers fill out the relevant form for VICRoads to maintain their driving licence.
