Did you know that the California Department of Motor Vehicles (CA DMV) requires applicants to meet certain visual requirements in order to pass their driver’s license test? Upon completing the driving portion of the test, the California DMV requires that you pass a standard eye test using a Snellen Eye Chart. The CA DMV vision requirements are as follows:
- Drivers must have visibility at 20/40 with both eyes combined (e.g. one eye visibility at 20/40 and the other eye visibility at 20/70).
- Anyone not meeting this vision standard is required to wear corrective lenses while driving (such as glasses or contact lenses).
If you cannot pass the CA DMV vision test without the use of glasses or corrective contact lenses, contact Laser Eye Center today to learn more about improving your vision with All-Laser LASIK Eye Surgery.
