Abstract
Primary care physicians have to assess visual functions essential for driving when determining medical fitness to drive. However, it can be difficult to apply the legal requirements that are described in annex 1 of the ordinance regulating the admission to road traffic of 1976 (OAC) due to lack of unambiguousness. This article discusses those visual functions that have to be assessed namely visual acuity, the visual field and the detection of diplopia and it presents the appropriate methods for the primary care setting. Another objective is to discuss the relevance of road safety requirements on vision and to present the new Swiss requirements proposed for the future in comparison to some international recommendations.
