[Limitation of lens power in automobile drivers].
Klin Monbl Augenheilkd. 1994 Jan; 204(1):37-43.KM

Abstract

High plus lenses may cause defects in the peripheral visual field. Simple full vision lenses or lenticular lenses without a masked transition zone caused an absolute ring scotoma in the mid-periphery. Patients who were glasses of this type cannot see well enough to drive safely. Although modern edge finishes with masking of the transition zone reduce this problem, visual disturbances in the periphery of the lenses cannot be completely eliminated. A recommendation recently issued by the German Ophthalmological Society concerning maximum lens powers for motorists is aimed at preventing visual field defects of this type.
