AARP, AOA offers free Webinar on the effects of aging vision on driving
AARP’s free Webinar, “Keep Your Safety in Sight: Prepare for the Effects of Aging Vision on Driving,” will be offered Wednesday, May 11 from 3 p.m. to 4 p.m. EDT.
As you age, your vision undergoes certain changes that can affect your driving and may increase your risk of being in an accident. This session, hosted jointly by the AARP Driving Safety Program and the AOA, will explore these changes and provide valuable information to keep you safe on the road. You’ll learn:
- What changes in vision to expect with aging, including its effect on processing speed, blurred vision, problems seeing in low light or at night and reduced peripheral vision
- How these changes can affect your driving
- Practical tips and resources to help you prepare for and cope with vision and environmental driving changes
