Becoming a pilot is my dream job. However, due to my poor eyesight I have yet to achieve it. There’s one thing I don’t understand about class 1 medical, it’s a big hurdle that I’ve to overcome and the main reason why I’ve been rejected and correct me if I’m wrong about this statement: Most airlines wouldn’t want someone to go for LASIK surgery if he/she couldn’t make the cut and would result in instant rejection should they attempt it. That being said if my eyesight is too high (above 600) for both eyes, I’m not allowed to go for eye surgery for the purpose of correcting my eyesight to 6/6 vision and thus the only way to do so is wear glasses. But even with glasses, the problem is still not solved as my eyesight is still over 600!
Indirectly speaking, if I’ve over 600 degrees of eyesight, is the airline telling me to just stop trying and move on?
