OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) -- A report released Wednesday shows Oklahoma is one of only nine states that don't require follow-up vision screening for drivers.

The state-by-state report by the Vision Council of America says those lax vision screening requirements may be putting drivers in danger.

Of the top ten states with the highest rate of fatal crashes, eight either require no vision screening after a person receives a driver's license or require screenings only once every eight or more years.

Oklahoma was not among ten states cited as having the highest rate of fatal crashes.
