Driving Cessation and Driving Limitation in Glaucoma. The Salisbury Eye Evaluation Project

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Objective: To determine if glaucoma is associated with driving limitation or cessation. Design: Cross-sectional analysis within a longitudinal, population-based cohort study. Participants and Controls: One thousand one hundred thirty-five ever-drivers between 73 and 93, including 70 subjects with unilateral and 68 subjects with bilateral glaucoma. Methods: All subjects reported their driving habits during each of 4 study rounds. During the fourth and final study round, subjects were assessed systematically for the presence of glaucoma. Main Outcome Measures: Self-reported driving cessation or driving limitation, including cessation of night driving, driving fewer than 3000 miles annually, or cessation of driving in unfamiliar areas. Results: Fifteen percent of subjects without glaucoma no longer were driving at the end of the cohort study, compared with 21% of unilateral glaucoma subjects (P = 0.2) and 41% of bilateral glaucoma subjects (P
