I am currently working on my packet and about to get my flight physical done. I have a concern regarding correctable vision. My right eye is about 20/25 and left eye about 20/40. Correctable to 20/20 no problem, but I worry that my left eye may get slightly worse before the second flight physical after WOCS.
If, for instance, my eyesight comes back as 20/50 for the first test and then I go through WOCS and it comes back as 20/70, what would happen? Can that be waived at that point or is it possible to have corrective surgery and be in limbo for 3-6 months before they let you start IERW, or do they DQ you and send you to a different job immediately?
I'd hate to get through everything and then that happen, and if that is a possibility I'd rather have the surgery before I put in the packet.
Thanks for any advice!
