driving and diplopia
Last edited 06/2019
- Must not drive and must notify the DVLA.
- Driving may resume after the DVLA has received confirmation that the diplopia
is controlled, for example by:
- glasses or
- a patch for which there is an undertaking to use it while driving (but note the requirements for monocular vision above).
- Exceptionally, a stable uncorrected diplopia endured for 6 months or more may be licensable with the support a consultant specialist's report of satisfactory functional adaptation.
Up-to-date guidance may be obtained from the publication "At a Glance Guide to the Current Medical Standards of Fitness to Drive" and the website www.dvla.gov.uk.
