Let's Talk About the Texas DMV/DPS
They know nothing about eyes. Nothing. They know nothing about vision! Nothing. "Failing" the vision test (acuity) at the DPS/DMV is meaningless. It does not mean that you see poorly or need glasses. It means their test sucks. I'm serious. "Passing" the vision test at the DPS/DMV does not mean that you see well or have healthy eyes. Sorry. Because once again: their test sucks. It is horribly inaccurate and it often fails people who see fine and should easily pass, and it often passes people who see terrible and need glasses or have eye disease. IF YOU FAIL: go to an optometrist. IF YOU PASS: still occasionally go to an optometrist. Do not make any of your eye/vision decisions based on what anyone at the DPS/DMV tells you about your eyes or vision.
