South Carolina legislators are deciding whether people may use a biOptic to drive. The legislation now heads to the House floor for debate.

 

Announcement due soon.

 

That follows the implementation of legislation in Arizona, allowing biOptics to be used for driving, in February 2006.

 


So what happened to the BDN 2006 Conference?

 

Sadly one of the founders of BDN wanted to leave his optometric employer, another after relocating permanently from the UK to the US totalled her car, and another had oncological problems. Those external factors inevitably diminished their capacity to work on the cause. Written enquiries: Susan Baillely, BDN Ltd, 7775 Ivygate Lane, Cincinnati, OH 45242  USA

Driving at speed, especially on uneven road surfaces can seriously diminish your vision.  Speed kills.  Kill you speed and comply with driving restrictions.
