Presbyopia and driving vision
« Reply #1 on: July 15, 2011, 11:53:31 AM »
Q: At about what age does the average person start to lose their eye sight?  Is it true that some eye doctors report people that have poor vision to the state, so they can not drive anymore?  If you have any information about older people and vision i would like to know.
A: The average person never loses his or her eyesight. Typically people in their forties begin to have more trouble focusing on close objects (presbyopia). It is at this age when people start using reading glasses and bifocals to help with this problem.Some states require doctors to report vision which is not correctible to the minimum driving requirements to the state authority.
