Driving and ocular hypertension
Can I continue to drive with ocular hypertension?
Ocular hypertension is not glaucoma and there is no requirement to inform the Driver and Vehicle Licensing Agency (DVLA) about the condition, unless it develops into glaucoma in both eyes (in which case you are required by law to inform the DVLA).
Nevertheless, it is important that your general eyesight is good enough to allow you to drive so if you have any doubts it is best to ask your optometrist or ophthalmologist.
