Do I need glasses to get my CDL?

I am about to take my road test for my class A CDL. I got a notice from the DMV which said something about needing prescription eyewear for my road test. I didn't get to read the whole thing since I was heading out the door in a hurry. Before I got back, my gf trashed it. Now it's gone.

My eye sight is 20/20 in one eye but it's 20/20- in the other eye. I have astigmatism in my left eye. Could that be a reason why I would have to get glasses to take my road test? Thanks.

    You don't need glasses. If you were going to have a glasses restriction on your drivers license, you would need to wear glasses for your road test.
