Lockdown is easing and lots of us are going to be getting back to the road. Travelling to see family and friends - for an outside socially distant visit of course! Some may be heading back to the office or travelling for work again.
Recent news reports regarding a top government official driving a long way to test his vision has reignited the issue of driving vision. There are many on the road driving with inadequate vision. Many are using an older spectacle prescription or perhaps have never had an eye examination.
Check out this interview with a colleague on Sky News talking about just this - driving and your vision. Dr Peter Hampson points out that optometrists are still available both in person and remotely for those struggling with their vision or concerned about the health of the eyes.
