Drivers are failing to have their eyes tested within the recommended two year timeframe, according to a survey at Bromley Pageant of Motoring on Sunday.
Conducted by Specsavers, the survey also revealed a third of drivers asked did not have regular examinations, with a quarter of those admitting responsibility for a road accident.
Imran Khan, store director at Specsavers Bromley, said: “‘Eyesight changes throughout our lives, often very gradually and without people noticing.
“Without regular eye examinations it could be several years before you find that your eyesight is no longer good enough to drive safely. To ensure that your vision remains safe to drive you should visit your optician regularly.’
Specsavers is campaigning to make eye examinations a necessary part of the driving test.
