Can I drive if I have macular degeneration?

Macular degeneration can have a very real negative impact on your ability to drive, as it largely affects the central part of your vision, which is essential for driving. However, because macular degeneration often leaves a person’s peripheral vision intact, certain low vision aids such as prism glasses may be able to help some of our dry eye patients to continue driving even after significant vision loss. We will be able to advise you on how you can best put your dry eye aids to work and adjust your driving habits and routes to minimize the risks to themselves and others. It is important for patients with macular degeneration to regularly monitor their vision and consult with a trusted eye care to ensure that any further changes in their eyes don’t go unnoticed.
