AirOneMatthew Posted March 29, 2010 Report Share Posted March 29, 2010 Hey Everyone, I am finishing up a Bachelor's in Biology from the University of Dayton (Ohio) and will graduate in May. It's been my dream and goal to fly helicopters for the military since I was young. Having glasses since the 4th grade, I thought this wasn't possible. I am planning on getting Custom Wavefront Guided Lasik (the one the Navy recommends since it deals with the night sight problems and light halos) in the fall of this year. I've been doing research everywhere, and it turns out, at least for the Navy (where my first choice is) is that I can get Lasik, be viewed by a flight surgeon and get cleared. I am looking to go through the OCS route, mainly because I am interested in joining the military to serve my country AND to fly. I wouldn't want to join unless I knew I could do both. My question is...with the Army and the Air Force, am I still able to apply for OCS and a Pilot slot with Lasik? I get mixed results everywhere I've looked. The only place I am sure I am able to do this is the Navy. If anyone has any information I could use here, I'd be much appreciative! I've looked through the whole Military forum on this site and didn't find too much stuff on this topic. Looking forward to all the replies! -Matthew Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
