Vision declines in older drivers

The number of older motorists has reached a history record since people over 50 are still likely to maintain active lifestyles. On the other hand, poor night vision in older individuals is a serious traffic hazard.

Improve night vision for older motorists

For safe night driving, older motorists should be clear about their vision conditions and follow expert advice. Some older drivers never visit ECPs for a long period. Vision declines are major causes of accidents among old people. Older drivers should visit eye doctors at least every two years, in order to get visual field tests, contrast sensitivity testing and so on.
