Natural vision advocates protest requirement for glasses while driving

driver's view

Natural vision advocates are planning rallies at DMV (Department of Motor Vehicle) offices around the country today. They are protesting what they believe to be the coercive tactics of the DMV in mandating vision correction for drivers with less than perfect vision. Simply put, anyone applying for a license must submit to a vision test, and anyone who has been diagnosed with nearsightedness must wear glasses or contacts while driving. Members of the group Vision Junkies United think that is wrong.

According to their spokesperson Mr. Jayden Kayden Hayden:

Human eyes are designed by nature to see perfectly. Are we really supposed to believe that 25% if the population needs vision correction? That’s simply laughable. We wouldn’t be here if nearsightedness were so common. We would have died out long ago.

Ms. I. C. Yu, the president of Vision Junkies United, explains the ten point manifesto prepared by her organization:

Eyeglasses and contacts are unnatural. Nature never intended human beings to have vision correction.

Relying on natural vision instead of giving in to glasses is empowering. Anyone can drive safely wearing glasses. It is a true achievement to drive safely without them.

The requirement for a vision test is absurd. All you have to do to drive it to see; it is hardly necessary to test every single person for vision impairment.

We need to trust vision. It’s time for us to reject the notion that human eyes are broken and need to be “fixed” by artificial means.

People should rely on their intuition about vision. If they believe that it is safer to drive without glasses, then they should drive without glasses.

Vision affirmations lead to better outcomes. Drivers should continually remind themselves, “I can see the car in front of me” and that will naturally improve their ability to see.

The decision to wear glasses is a choice. The DMV has no right to interfere with individuals’ right to make their own choice about whether they will wear glasses or contacts while driving, or even whether they will submit to the vision test when renewing their license.

Vision junkies are far more educated on the topic of vision than others. Most people behave like sheep when told that they need glasses for vision correction. They just go out and buy them, without ever questioning whether they are truly necessary.

There’s no scientific evidence that driving with glasses is safer than driving without. No one has even bothered to study it. Those in authority simply assumed that correcting nearsightedness is safer.

No one should underestimate the influence of “Big Glasses.” The vision industry is a multi-billion dollar industry. No one profits by declaring that you have perfect vision. Eyeglass manufacturers, contact lens manufacturers, optometrists and opticians only profit if you need vision correct. Is it any wonder that so many people are told they need glasses?

According to Ms. Yu, the American people need to “take back vision” from those who have tried to intimidate us into believing that our eyes are broken. We should stop giving in to the perceived need to actually see the road and return to our natural roots. We must learn to see the way nature intended, without glasses and without contacts, and we will surely feel empowered as a result.
