“Depending on the severity, functional impairment, and stability of the condition, DMV may take different actions when receiving a report of a driver with a visual impairment,” the California DMV says.
The California DMV’s vision screening standard is the ability to see 20/40 with both eyes together (with or without corrective lenses). Drivers who fail the vision screening are referred to a vision specialist who must then examine the driver and complete a Report of Vision Examination (DL 62) form (and said form must be submitted to the DMV).
