Bioptic Driving and Distance Systems


Bioptic driving is a method of driving that utilizes both the patient’s general vision and intermittent spotting through a small telescopic system that improves the sharpness of the patient’s vision. These patients drive with their own vision about 95% of the time, but these brief views through the bioptic telescope provide details such as signs, traffic lights and far distant objects. Bioptic driving requires extensive training in both the use of the bioptic and behind-the-wheel driver’s training.
