I have cataracts and I had myopia before LASIK surgery. The LASIK surgery was done in the late 90s and I have had cataracts for the last few years. The doctors do not want to operate on them yet, for fear that a detached retina problem may result. So, my vision has been steadily getting worse. In Ohio, you have to take a vision test in order to renew your driver's license. The machines they use are difficult to work with. The last time I was at my eye doctors, I thought she mentioned a form I could get to state I was tested at the doctors and could skip the eye test part at the DMV. My question is, does such a form exist or is there another place I can go for an eye test, besides the DMV?View Thread
