Re: NJ Driving
From: Michael Zaleski
I have had a NJ driver's license for over 12 years, and a NY license for 10 years before that. In all the time I have had a NJ license, I have never seen any detailed visual requirements - certainly not at the level of NY. However, what I have seen and what actually exists are probably two different things. I would suggest confering with a professional who is familair with these issues. I have dealt with: New York Optometric Center 33 West 42nd Street NY, NY 10036 212-780-5013 appointments. for all those years and would recommend them.
However, in all my years of following the bioptic driving issue, I have never seen any state licensing drivers with 20/400 vision. It is not clear if this is your son's uncorrected vision or whether this is through "regular" glasses, such as would serve as the carrier lenses for bioptics.
Cordially, Michael Zaleski
