I have seen guys driving with eye patches on so as long as you have good vision in one eye I think you may be ok. Dont mark my words cause quite honeslty I dont know the exact laws on this subject but I have seen drivers with eye patches on so there has to be something you can do. I would call your local DMV and ask them. Hope everything works out for you. Good Luck

The waiver is done when you get your physical. But the examining physician may require corrective lens. So I would be proactive and get them now if I had insurance...10-4?
