When you’re driving on the road, it’s important that you do everything you can to make the roadway safe for other drivers. One easy way that you can ensure the safety of others is to maintain a clear field of vision. Being able to see the road in front of you is an important part of operating a vehicle, and while there are many objects and situations that are out of your control, you can make the road safer by having your eyes examined.
At MVD Express, part of our job is to ensure that drivers get to where they’re going safely. We offer all of the MVD services that you would find at a traditional facility, but we also try to go above and beyond by offering information about rules, regulations, and tips for making your trip as stress-free as possible. Whether you are looking to get your New Mexico driver’s license or you want to find out how to renew your vehicle registration, you can find it all at our New Mexico DMV. Give us a call today!
Get your eyes checked!
We don’t have to tell you how important your eyes are to driving, and we promise there’s a reason we make you stare into a magic contraption with a bright light and small letters every time you renew your driver’s license. Getting your eyes checked isn’t only good for your safety on the road, but it’s also good for preserving your sight and overall health. For this reason, it’s important that you take our advice and get your eyes checked on a routine basis to ensure that you have clear vision both on and off the road.
Eye Exam Basics
A regular, comprehensive eye exam can help detect vision problems, brain function problems, tumors, and eye diseases. To prevent any problems with your vision and to maintain your optical health, it’s a good idea to get your eyes checked for various reasons, including:
- A regular checkup one a year due to changing vision
- As a part of routine care, because eye diseases can be asymptomatic
- To correct blurry vision and deterioration
- To detect larger, overall health problems
Getting your eyes checked regularly can also help to prevent blindness due to undetected eye diseases. Not to mention, keeping your eyes healthy will also keep you and other drivers safer on the road!
Vision Tests at MVD Express
To ensure the safety of all drivers on the road, passing a vision test is required by the state before you will be able to receive your license. Don’t worry if you need to wear contact lenses or glasses while taking the vision test, as it will just be noted on your license that you need to wear corrective lenses to drive legally.
At MVD Express, you can find everything you need to ensure that your vehicle is up to date and that you can safely operate a vehicle. Whether you’re in need of a New Mexico driver’s license or you need a vision test, we are here to help! Visit one of our 10 locations in New Mexico, and schedule your appointment in advance to help you get in, get out, and get back on the road.
