Australian Driver Eyesight Issues

An article regarding Australian drivers having problems reading road signs and other eyesight issues.

Over 25 years ago, I used to have problems when looking at overhead projections at conferences and I wondered why the slideshows always seemed to be out of focus, as I had to squint to read them.

Whilst at a GP in Brisbane in regard to headaches I was having, he asked me to read a street sign across the intersection which I couldn’t.

He then asked me to try his glasses and the sign was perfectly clear, following which I immediately had an eyetest and bought prescription glasses.

Problem solved.
