    Recruiter advice

    Do NOT mark no. LASIK flaps are very easy to see on any eye exam. You don't want to be in the position of explaining why you lied. These days, as long as you meet all of the requirements, a history of LASIK is no big deal. It doesn't even require a waiver. If you have any questions, PM me.

    USAF / USA / USN / USMC Vision

    It will not be missed on an IFC I. Can't speak for MEPS. It's your call on whether to report it unless there are any medical history questions that pertain to it. Then I would be honest. I can't say for sure whether it would be disqualifying or even require a waiver. It just depends on the specifics of the case. Certainly having documentation showing that it's been present for a while without changes can't hurt. I would be cautiously optimistic.

    I'm sorry to say that if one eye is not correctable to 20/20, you are almost certainly going to be disqualified within no waiver.

    MFS-N for interservice transfer

    MFS-N is the same as MFS. It will be done at Wright-Patterson. The timing can vary and it may be when you are en route. The exam will consist of the neuro-psychiatry exam (the "N" part) as well as color vision, corneal topography and red lens (eye alignment test). The may also do height/weight although I'm not totally sure about that part.

    Can anyone give recent FC1/MFS Experience?

    Some people get their IFC I done at a location other than Wright-Patt. If so, you come to Wright-Patt for the MFS only portion later. If you are an OTS select the IFC I is typically done before OTS and the MFS is done after. The more traditional route, especially for ROTC and ANG/AFRES, is to come to Wright-Patt for the IFC I and MFS to be done simultaneously. If you are scheduled for IFC I at Wright-Patt you are almost certainly scheduled on a Monday or Tuesday. MFS only are usually scheduled on Wednesdays and sometimes on Thursdays.

    I think the FCI docs will take precedence. Lots of weird stuff happens at MEPS that doesn't always make sense.

    PRK and LASIK Information

    Maybe some will, but I've seen many units hold slots for people needing refractive surgery.

    PRK and LASIK Information

    I guess the answer depends on whether you are getting PRK just to qualify for the Air Force or if you'd want to pay to get it done regardless of a flying career. If you don't want to have it done unless it means the difference in flying versus not flying, then I'd wait until I was picked up. On the contrary, once you get PRK, there is a minimum six month wait before you can take your physical so that may be an issue.
  9. Way too lazy to run, but the temp was 89 degrees out mowing the lawn this afternoon. Apparently this is the summer that doesn't want to end.

    PM me with your information and I'll look into it (if you want me to).

    PRK and LASIK Information

    Waivers are in AIMWTS. Do you have access to flight medicine? They can access it.

    PRK and LASIK Information

    William, Are you seriously asking these questions? They have been answered ad nauseam both in this thread and throughout this website. Help yourself out and do a little research.

    I believe you can get interim approval, attend OTS and then be disqualified at MFS. It makes no sense and I don't know why they do this, but they do.

    An FC I can be done anywhere, but you'll come to Wright-Patt for the MFS exam if the FC I is not done at Wright-Patt.
