More than a million drivers with poor eyesight could be driving on Britain’s roads illegally, optometrists warn

  • The Association of Optometrists commissioned a poll of 1,246 of its members
  • Almost half said they had recently seen a patient who drives with bad vision
  • It said the Government must toughen the law on vision testing for motorists

Around 1 million people with poor eyesight could be driving illegally, a report warns.

Almost half of optometrists (44 per cent) have seen a patient in the last month who still drives despite being told their vision is below the legal standard.

This could equate to around 1 million motorists, according to the Association of Optometrists, which commissioned a poll of 1,246 of its members.
