North Carolina Drivers Gain Bioptic Priveledges6:34 PM
Imagine a world where your vision limited you to the point that you could no longer pass your driver's test. So many of my patients ask me if they are legally blind, but the truth of legally blind is that you CAN'T get better vision with glasses or contact lenses. No matter what prescription is in your glasses or contact lenses, your vision is severely limited. In these cases, your visual abilities can keep you from performing routine tasks like driving a car or crossing the street.
