Glaucoma, driving and DVLA

If you have type 1 licence (non-commercial vehicles) then you need to inform the DVLA if you have glaucoma with field defects in both eyes. If you have ocular hypertension or field defects in only one eye then you do not need to inform DVLA.

If you have type 2 licence (commercial vehicles) then you need to inform the DVLA if you have glaucoma.

If you only have ocular hypertension then you do not need to inform the DVLA.

I feel very confident that l am receiving the best care and advice from Mr. Goyal who has been looking after me since l was diagnosed with high ocular pressure 5 years ago. He is always extremely professional and patient when explaining treatment options and his calm manner is very reassuring. Mr. Goyal always responds promptly to emails when l have any concerns and genuinely cares for his patients. He was recommended to me as one of the best glaucoma consultants and l feel very fortunate to be under his care.

I have been receiving care from Mr Goyal for over 5 years and have had cataract surgery and treatment and management for glaucoma. Throughout this time he has always fully explained my treatment options and has been available to answer any questions. I know my future care and treatment in in good hands

For nearly the last two years I have been treated by Mr. Goyal for an aggressive type of glaucoma, and he is committed to doing everything he can to help my sight, taking a personal interest in the case. He is always punctual and attentive and makes sure I understand what we have been discussing. He carries out his procedures in a very professional but caring manner.
