Am I Safe To Drive?
I told someone that I was diagnosed with having tunnel vision. Their immediate reply was: “are you safe to drive?”
I have been asking myself the same question since the moment Dr. Magic Optometrist told me, “you have tunnel vision.”
I know I have to turn my head and look very carefully when I am driving. I also know I have to leave large following distance compared to so many people.
I mean, I have been driving for 31 years at this point. Am I safe to drive? Would the Department of Motor Vehicles have said to me: “you’re not safe to drive, you have tunnel vision.”
I have been compensating for this for as long as I have been driving. Am I safe to drive? I don’t know.
When I get my new glasses and they let me see in 3D, will they radically change how I drive? Will I be able to drive then? Someone I know is taking me to the appointment when I pick up my glasses, and I think it’s probably a good idea to ask them to drive and drive me home. My eyes may be very tired from the exercises and looking through new glasses experience I am going to have.
I guess these are questions I will be able to ask when I get the glasses.
