We can all appreciate the importance of good eyesight when behind the wheel of a car so it is understandable that all applications for provisional driving licences in Ireland must be accompanied by an eyesight report completed by a registered ophthalmic optician or registered medical practitioner. As well as having good central vision it is important that drivers have good peripheral sight.
Peripheral vision must now be assessed by means of a visual field test carried out with a field screener to test for a defect in one’s visual field which may impair the ability to spot a vehicle or pedestrian before it is directly in front of the driver.
We are happy to take appointments for driving licence eyesight reports for both category 1 (cars and 8 seater vehicles).
