    I knew a driver with one glass eye. It was always looking over my right shoulder when I talked to him. It made me feel like there was somebody lurking behind me about to club me on the back of the head. creepy.

    If you pass all other aspects of the DOT physical, and you meet all vision requirements in the functioning eye, then you may be considered for a Federal Vision Exemption.

    Doesnt mean they will grant it.
