Insight: The Journal of the American Society of Ophthalmic Registered Nurses
The current visual standards for driver licensing of the general population in all 50 states and the District of Columbia are described. Minimum visual acuity standards range from 20/40 (73%) to vision less than 20/2/00 (Washington). The majority of states (92%) offer some type of restricted license which provide an opportunity for low vision drivers to keep their independence while at the same time affording society a high level of safety in the driving system. Tips for the ophthalmic nurse are provided.
