Get Your Eyes Tested For Road Safety Week

When was the last time you tried a number plate test? Is your vision starting to weaken?

Our roads are very dangerous places. Every week hundreds of people suffer serious injuries and even die on Britain’s roads.

Road Safety Week 2016 (21-27 November) is raising awareness and encouraging safe driving practices. The road safety charity Brake is focusing on six elements of the Brake Pledge:


The Sharp element of the pledge is all about eyesight. By taking the pledge you are swearing to stay focused while driving, take regular breaks to rest your eyes and get your eyes tested every two years.

Why Should I Get My Eyes Tested Every 2 Years?

It’s possible to lose 40% of your vision before you actually notice any difference. That’s why it’s vital for any driver to get regular eye tests. The law states that you must be able to read a number plate from 20 metres away in order to drive. Unfortunately a casual ‘number plate test’ only tests your visual acuity. Our industry leading eye exam service gives you an incredible insight into not just the quality of your vision, but also your level of eye health.

If you need your vision corrected and don’t do anything about it you are putting your life, and the lives of others, at risk. By law, you are also at risk of receiving a £1,000 fine and a driving ban.

We at Eyesite are leaders in clinical excellence and innovation in eye care. As part of your Road Safety Week Pledge, visit us today and book your eye test.

Almost 3,000 people a year are injured due to crashes caused by poor driver vision
