Abstract

Date Presented 03/28/20

This study identified compensatory strategies used by individuals with glaucoma who drove safely and those who failed an on-road driving test. Participants completed vision tests, a compensatory driving strategies questionnaire, and an on-road driving assessment. Preliminary results indicate that individuals with glaucoma who failed the on-road assessment modified their driving, used selected vehicular technology more frequently, and were older than those who passed.
