We’re Not Sure He Should Be Driving, Regardless Of His Vision

, , , , | Healthy | January 25, 2023

I recently had an appointment at an eye hospital for intermittent double vision. I was ushered into an examination room with two chairs, vision charts on the far wall, etc.

In the other chair, an older man was giving his details to an optometrist.

As I waited my turn, the optometrist told the man to put on his driving (distance) glasses and read a line from the chart. Instead, he put on an enormously thick-lensed pair of reading glasses, got out of the chair, and read the line with his nose pressed against the chart.

Optometrist: “Can’t you see the chart with your driving glasses?”

Man: “Yes, but I need my reading glasses to read it.”
