Description of Bioptic Driving for People with Low Vision
Many individuals with low vision would like the privilege of driving an automobile. Some of these individuals have driven before but are now experiencing vision loss and have lost their license while others have never been able to meet the visual requirement for a driver’s license. Specialized telescopic lens systems, referred to as bioptics, are now making it possible for some of these individuals to drive. This webinar is aimed at service providers working with individuals with low vision who might be candidates for bioptic driving. Potential drivers and their families will also find this presentation very informative. Topics discussed will include a history and description of bioptic driving, low vision driver laws, suggestions for training, and resources about bioptic driving.
The webinar presenter is Ike Presley. Ike is the National Project Manager at the American Foundation for the Blind in Atlanta and is a bioptic driver himself.
