I'm not sure if an out-of-state ophthalmologist's medical evaluation would be valid here; check with the DMV; but my spouse flunked his eye exam a couple years back (I think he just had the misfortune to pick a bad day at the DMV. he's worn glasses for decades, but his prescription has been little altered over the past 10 years) and received a notice that states: "The Driver License
Section recently reviewed your driving file and concluded that you should be medically evaluated to determine your ability to safely operate a motor vehicle".
I would advise checking with the DMV if he could be checked out in his home state, or if he would have to see an eye doctor here.
He went to the ophthalmologist with whom we've dealt for several years and got a note saying that his eyes were perfectly fine for driving as long as he wore glasses. The DMV said "hokay
", and we've not heard from them since.
