You should do a quick search. You will find a topic called USAF / USA / USN / USMC Vision. Here's the summary.
There is no longer a visual acuity standard. You simply have to meet the refractive error requirements (-3.00 for myopia, -1.50 for astigmatism and +2.00 for hyperopia).
It does not appear as though you will meet the FC1 vision standards without a) a waiver or b) laser surgery.
I am just wondering if I have the vision standards needed for an initial Class 1 flight physical so I can go to UPT. I currently hold a USAF class 3 due to my AFSC (1c5x1d). I am currently an AGR so getting lasik/prk is something I am considering if I don't have the mins to get into a UPT slot.
Below is my medical info. Also, are any of these standards waiverable???
Uncorrected Far Vision OD: 20/100, OS: 20/100
Uncorrected Near Vision OD 20/20, OS: 20/25
Corrected Near & Far Vision OS: 20/20, OD: 20/20
OD: -2.75 -0.25 x 110
OS: -3.50 DS
If anyone has any answers I would really appreciate it.
