    Driving With Confidence: a practical guide to driving with low vision

    By Eli Peli and Doron Peli

    Published by World Scientific
    Publication date Fall 2001

    'DRIVING WITH CONFIDENCE' brings a clear, no-nonsense discussion of
    the realities of low vision conditions, together with a practical
    program designed to help low vision individuals maximize their
    chances of retaining and/or extending their driving privileges, if at
    all safe.
    The book also brings a detailed up to date description of driving
    vision regulations in every state in the US with specific emphasis on
    restricted low vision driving regulations.

    The book is written for persons with low vision and their families,
    but will be of great value for optometrists, ophthalmologists,
    transportation specialists, law enforcement officials and other
    professionals involved with the elderly.
