The state has launched a program to streamline the eye exam process for people over 40 who are renewing their driver's licenses.
Ophthalmologists and optometrists who sign up for the free program can submit a patient's vision screening results online to the Motor Vehicle Administration. Eligible drivers can then renew their driver's licenses through the agency's website or self-service kiosk. Drivers who use an MVA office can use the vision certification to eliminate the vision screening step in the renewal process.
Vision screening results are valid for 12 months from the date of exam. A list of participating doctors is available on MVA's website.
