Hi everyone! I live in Alabama where right now it is not legal to drive with bioptic lenses. I heard that there is something else known as the telecon system. If any of you currently use that could you please give me some info on it, or if anyone has any advice on how to get the stupid law changed in AL let me know!

Low vision rehabilitation: vision requirements for driving.
From: Colenbrander A, Fletcher DC.
J Ophthalmic Nurs Technol. 1992 May-Jun;11(3):111-5. Low vision rehabilitation: vision requirements for driving. Colenbrander A, Fletcher DC. Driving requires several different sets of abilities, the interaction of which is complex. The combination of these factors, rather than any single factor alone, may make it inadvisable to issue a driver's license. Although vision is the predominant source of information for the driver, visual abilities are only one of the factors to be considered when judging the overall driving ability of an applicant. The final determination can only be made through on-the-road evaluation and cannot be based on the evaluation of vision alone. Individual evaluations should include a review of the past driving record and of nonvisual driving-related abilities, as well as observation of on-the-road performance by a qualified driving instructor or driving evaluator.
