Drivers, when was the last time you had an eye test? Fess up. Three years ago ? Five?
You might be surprised to know that opticians recommend you get your eyes tested every two years so if you’ve not seen the inside of an optician for longer you’re taking a stupid risk.
Stephen Hannan, Clinical Services Director at Optical Express, says: “Good eyesight is an essential requirement for safe driving, as drivers with poor vision increase their risk of collisions due to not seeing hazards and their inability to react in time to dangers on the road.”
Obvious stuff, but it doesn’t stop many people assuming their eye sight is as sharp as it was the day they passed their test.
