Macular Degeneration FAQ:
Is it possible to drive with macular degeneration?
Macular degeneration can significantly impact a person's ability to drive, as it affects the central part of the retina responsible for sharp, detailed vision. However, some patients with macular degeneration may still be able to drive, especially if their peripheral vision remains intact. They may need to rely on visual aids such as magnifiers or telescopes to help them see road signs and traffic lights and may need to adjust their driving habits and routes to minimize the risks. It is important for patients with macular degeneration to regularly monitor their vision and consult with their healthcare provider about any safety concerns related to driving.
