These laws have been around for a looong time, so if it was a real issue or concern, surely something would have changed. It's not recovering myopes on the medical boards setting the standards, it's many medical professionals.

As I've noted before, the law is ultimately made by lawmakers, who are elected by the people. Just because there's a real concern doesn't mean the law is going to change. For example, epileptics are usually allowed to drive if they haven't had a seizure too recently. This is still dangerous, especially if they drive a lot, yet the law allows it.

If someone has a concern, that's where they should focus their energy and complaints, not on long established visual standards.

That there are such drivers on the road is all the more reason not to compromise your own driving in any way.

Only thing I regret is the ugly picture.
Clarknight, what are you talking about, you took a nice picture.
The posts are getting too personal and meaningless. I think you just need to give a bigger smile on the next photo. Big Grin
