After reviewing this exchange: Can you obtain a pilot license with impaired vision / being blind in one eye? I can see that having monocular vision is allowed by faa rules, but I would like to clarify a specific situation if possible.
For 30 years I have had correctable vision in one eye after having the lens removed due to an accident. I do not like or want the correction, but I had a driver's license examiner try to tell me that if my vision could be corrected, then it had to be corrected
So would the FAA medical examiner say that one can't fly without correcting their vision as much as possible, or just allow them to pass off as monocular? What if someone with perfect vision just liked wearing an eyepatch while flying?
Details: L eye 20/15, R eye 20/2000, correctable to about 20/40.
