Can I drive if I have macular degeneration?
Macular degeneration can hinder your ability to drive because it impacts the part of the retina that’s responsible for sharp, detailed vision, known as the macula. Nonetheless, we’re able to help some of our macular degeneration patients find a way to continue driving, especially if their peripheral vision remains intact. Visual aids such as telescopes or magnifiers can help these patients see road signs and traffic lights, and certain adjustments may need to be made to their driving habits and routes to minimize risks to themselves and others. Patients with macular degeneration should regularly monitor their vision and consult with our low vision optometrists about any safety concerns related to driving.
