Vision rehabilitation therapy for the BiOptic driver.

Vision rehabilitation therapy for the bioptic driver. Politzer MR. BACKGROUND: The use of a bioptic telescope for driving purposes has been controversial. This controversy has been fueled by confusion over which vision skills are needed for driving and how they are measured and developed. To make this issue even more complex, there are no standardized programs for evaluating patients and teaching basic vision skills needed to drive safely. METHODS: This paper will address vision skills and abilities which, intuitively, play an important role in driving. We will also propose a training program for the successful development of these skills since they relate to active driving, specifically, with a bioptic telescope. RESULTS: Our experience in working with patients who are partially sighted in the driving program seems to indicate that these patients have confidence in using their bioptic telescopic lens system for driving purposes. They appreciate and recognize the responsibility that comes with the independence that is gained from driving with the bioptic system. CONCLUSIONS: It is our hope that by providing these patients with appropriate care and training, we afford them the opportunity to adjust to their bioptic driving lens system and enjoy more years of independence and safe driving.
