Hello all,

I am scheduled to take my 1st class flight physical in Ft Hood on Nov. 4th. 
I have a question about the vision portion.

last week MEPS got me at 20/20 vision both eyes used together.  (I don’t own or use any corrective lenses).  Now I am fearful that each individual eye is less than 20/20, a couple years ago I was tested at 20/25 each individual eye, and 20/20 overall.

That being said, should I go get an eye exam prior to the flight physical and bring any corrective lenses with me to Ft Hood if necessary?  Or will I be ok to go without any corrective lenses and see what happens?

Thank you to anyone who assists with my question.

The cutoff for uncorrected vision for a flight physical is 20/70. It sounds like you will be fine without going to get an eye exam. You just have to be correctable to 20/20 which it sounds like you are. Don't think you have anything to stress over.
