Vision & Driving

Exploring the visual skills needed for safe driving

Visual Skills

Driving is an example of how the reality of the dynamic visual driving environment, with it’s changing levels of brightness, colour and contrast conflicts with the static, high contrast and artificial environment of the consulting room. At VisionCare Optometry, we understand that peripheral vision is important and for mature drivers that flexibility of the visual system is a must.
