Had my 3 year driving licence reminder this week from DVLA. As I have an eye condition (glaucoma)I was requested to have an eye test at Specsavers. After booking an appointment I went along to my nearest branch yesterday. They did a field test (zapping the white dots)which I got 100% then had the acuity test (reading the chart). Has the standard for driving been upped? as the size of letters on the chart for minimum standard seem a lot smaller than last time I had the test (3 years ago)
On the old type chart they were quite big and you really would have bad eye sight not to be able to read them. The minimum was line 5 (6/12) Specsavers like most opticians these days use a computor generated chart which maybe is not as clear as the old paper cart.
Anyway good news I passed.
Thank you for your support...
