Is Nystagmus and driving allowed?
When assessing Nystagmus and driving, nystagmus itself is not a criterion as long as the visual acuity and the visual field standards are met.
Visual acuity of at least (6/12) measured on the Snellen scale (with glasses or contact lenses, if necessary) and an adequate field of vision is required for driving.
Nystagmus and driving are an issue among people who suffer from Nystagmus. Nystagmus may severely disrupt the quality of life, especially deteriorating confidence and self-esteem. The influence of nystagmus on driving may be severe since it may disrupt visual sampling of the driving environment, interfere with driving behavior, and affect safety.
Driving is one of the most sensitive topics for people with nystagmus especially among young adults who may feel they are extremely dependent on others.
RevitalVision eye exercises for Nystagmus treatment are able to improve vision and bring the Nystagmus patients to a better baseline from where they can improve their day-to-day life by using other visual aids.
