Optometrists, opticians & ophthalmologists are all seeing red over NY DMV turning a blind eye to vision tests for drivers. Although critics claim drivers need to be able to read the bottom line on the eye chart NYDMV says its bottom line is more important.
Fewer exams at DMV offices mean fewer employees needed.
And it’s no accident that auto repair shops applaud their forward thinking.
By dropping the eye exam requirement for license renewal the DMV is asking drivers to go on honor system. This is quite shortsighted and the DMV must be using rose colored glasses rather than through a glass darkly if they think motorists will see the light and be honorable!
