VISION SCREENING

Before licensing agencies can take action to lessen the threat to public safety presented by age-related deficiencies, the nature and extent of those deficiencies must be assessed. Only then is it possible to take measures that will achieve the best possible balance between the safety of the public and the mobility of the elderly driver. Screening processes include driving performance, functional capabilities, medical evaluation, vision screening, and use of traffic records. This paper examines vision screening, describing the problem giving rise to the process, the needs that the process must satisfy, and the actions that must be taken to meet those needs.
