Item description for Driving With Confidence: A Practical Guide to Driving With Low Vision by Eli Peli, Doron Peli, Gerard Journee, Leopoldo Iribarren, Lucien Dodge, Larry C. Spears & Ana Planella...

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.

Reviews - What do customers think about Driving With Confidence: A Practical Guide to Driving With Low Vision?

Driving with Confidence: A Practical Guide to Driving with L  Jan 13, 2003
The authors offer people with low vision an optimistic, do-it-yourself, down-to-earth approach to obtaining or retaining a driver's license.
My husband has age-related macular degeneration, and we have gone the rounds of doctors, specialists, laser and photodynamic-something-or-other treatments, plus the DMV.
This "practical guide" explains various eye diseases cataract, AMD, glaucoma, diabetic retinopathy, retinitis pigmentosa, optic atrophy, corneal dystrophy, stroke at least as clearly or maybe even more clearly as have the professionals whom we have consulted.
The guide urges readers to educate themselves about their state's DMV vision policy, investigate the various aids and devices available for vision-impaired drivers, and then come to their own conclusion as to whether they should be behind the wheel.
Among the amazing devices described in this guide are minifying mirrors by Brookstone, bioptic telescopes (Galilean and Keplerian) mounted on regular glasses, a telescope implanted in the eye, and the GPS-based iRadio system being developed by Motorola.
Surprise! there are personal trainers who specialize in teaching low-vision drivers!
The 104 pages of appendices are a valuable resource, providing definitions, contact information for further information and support, DMV vision requirements in 50 states plus D.C., and a bibliography.
This book is IN BIG PRINT! Very thoughtful.
