Millions of people, in the US and other parts of the world, face the grim prospect of losing their driving privileges, their mobility, and to a great extent their freedom, due to a deterioration in their eyesight or a disabling eye disease.

Driving with Confidence is an empowering tool. Its message is simple: In many cases, people with low vision can and do receive, retain and safely exercise their driving privileges.

The book presents a clear, no-nonsense discussion on the realities of low vision conditions, together with a practical program designed to help low vision individuals maximize their chances of retaining and/or extending their driving privileges. It also provides a detailed description of driving vision regulations in every state in the US.
