I would like to attend a Class I pilot Licence, but my eyes are not 'the best'. If I'd undergo refractive surgery (RS from now on), and the intervention goes well, will I fit the requirements?
For example, your defect can't be more than -5 of miopy per eye before the RS.
My question mainly refers to the eligibility requirements in Europe, they seem not matching with Italian ones.
this is the abstract. “Applicants who have had refractive surgery and are being considered for medical certification (first time?) or recertification (this should be the second visit on) should meet the following criteria: a) The surgery is uncomplicated. b) Vision is stable. c) There is no corneal haze and no complaints of glare, halos or “ghosting”. d) The result meets the visual requirements of Annex 1, and the assessment must be based on measurements made by a qualified vision care specialist acceptable to the Licensing Authority. e) There should be follow-up examinations by a qualified vision care specialist six months after return to duty and yearly thereafter.”
If i can skip the limit of eye sight taking a licence out of Italy (for ex.in other European countries,the US, etc) will I be able to pass the EASA medical visit as a pilot qualified in the States and be able to choose where to work? Thank you for your answers.
