Andrew's story in New South Wales

Driving for nearly 40 years, I held a full unrestricted licence until 2019 when I had to get my licence renewed and this was the first time I was unable to pass the eye test at the registry. I came across Bioptics when researching driving aids. With a report from my ophthalmologist I was able to renew my licence but with a restriction on driving within a set distance from my home in Sydney.

Belinda's stroy in the Australian Capital Territory

My journey started in 2014 when I found out about bioptic driving from a Facebook group with my eye sight condition. I then found Dr Sharon Oberstein. By this time I already had my bioptic and other adaptive eye sight tools for driving for over one year - she just needed to show me how to use it to drive. Driving is a privilege and I pinch myself everyday that I and others have this wonderful opportunity.
