Are you able to get a school bus driving job if you can only see out of one eye?
An optimologist once told me that it is very hard, but possible to get your pilot's licence with sight in only one eye. I was wondering if anyone is a school bus driver out there, they could tell me how detailed the vision test is for a bus driver's licence.

Yes, you can get a job driving a bus with vision in only one eye, but you will need to get a waiver from the DMV to do so. I am a one eyed pilot who drove a bus at one time in my lengthy career.
