Driving Vision REQUIREMENTS

A vision test is an integral part of obtaining a driver’s license, for the first time as well as during renewal, especially for senior citizens. Testing vision for driver’s license approval is necessary because driving requires good eyesight to perceive roadside conditions, as well as make sudden decisions and act accordingly in ensuring road safety.

PILOT VISUAL REQUIREMENTS

Pilot Vision Assessment In Vaughan & Woodbridge

Because visual perception is so critical to aviation, it has devised complex and highly structured components of the pilot medical exam devoted to the eyes and vision. During the eye examination, our eye doctors in Vaughan checks for diseases or defects that may cause a failure in visual function while flying or pain sufficient to interfere with safely performing airman duties. Tell your us about any changes in vision, unusual visual experiences (halos, scintillations, etc.), sensitivity to light, injuries, surgery, or current use of medication. Report inordinate difficulties with eye fatigue or strain ort any history of serious eye disease such as glaucoma or other diseases commonly associated with secondary eye changes, such as diabetes.

TC/CAM is currently requesting a follow-up report if there are any post-operative complications that arise beyond the initial assessment period. You can use the same form as the original reports. An ophthalmologist or an optometrist can complete this report.

FIREFIGHTER VISUAL REQUIREMENTS

Eye exams are critical because many vision threatening eye diseases such as glaucoma, macular degeneration, cataracts, or diabetic retinopathy have no or minimal symptoms until the disease has progressed which can have consquences. In these cases, early detection and treatment by our optometrists is essential to stopping or slowing down the progression of the disease and saving eyesight. During a comprehensive eye examination, your eye doctor will be looking for initial signs of these diseases.
