(If your uncorrected vision is no worse than 20/XX -- check on the latest threshold there -- and corrected to 20/20, then you're fine. I know bubbas who wear contacts, and carry glasses as a backup. You're going to do a lot more than a mere reading of the eye chart...but those are the basics.)
I know this is old, but I never knew guys could fly with contacts. I knew about glasses though. Does that mean u dont need the surgery as long as your vision qualifies you to 20/20 (with the use of contacts)? Or is that for pilots who already are flying, and there vision has grown worse over their carrer?
thanks in advance
