RedCardOP said:Actually I was at the recruitment center a few weeks ago (And forgot my ID like a genius) and asked a similar question. The times are as such:
Non-approved Procedures for Pilots:
Any other corneal reshaping procedures
Conventional (non WFG) refractive surgery

I believe this information might not be true for applying candidates to pilot trade. WFG is for SERVING pilots. Its the safest surgery and when the forces fully trained you at enormous cost it’s quite understandable. Applying candidates that received conventional LASIK/PRK (non-WFG) prior to enrollement and observe no complications after 6 month should be fine.
Correct me if i’m wrong.
