CDL eye test/exam question

I am considering a career in truck driving, but i have a scar in the retina in my left eye. Will the eye test for CDL test for each eye or is it done with both eyes...in other words, i can pass an eye test looking with both eyes at the same time but cannot see with only my left eye (blurry when trying to read with left)

Yes, that's it exactly. Cover one eye and then cover the other. Jimmy

so, you are saying during the physical the eye test is performed on each eye? i.e. cover left eye and read chart...cover right eye and read chart???

Your vision has to be correctable to 20/40 in each eye. Just got that from my long form physical. Jimmy
