Your ophthalmologist will be able to determine whether you can continue driving based on your level of sight loss. You will also need to tell the Driver and Vehicle Licensing Agency (DVLA) about your eye condition so they can ensure you can fulfil the basic eyesight requirements for operating a motor vehicle.
The DVLA will then decide whether you can keep your driver’s license, issue you with a new license for a limited period subject to a review of your condition, or take away your license altogether. If you do lose your license, it is possible to get it back if your eye condition improves.
Visit the Driving section of the RNIB’s website for more information about driving with an eye condition.
