Has anybody actually been taken on as a pilot with V2 vision + corrective lenses since the RCAF relaxed the vision standards?Melbatoast said:You can be V2, laser corrected, or probably even both.
I currently fall into the V2 category with 6/7.5 (refractive error -0.625) in one eye and around 6/12-15 in the other (refractive error -1.0). Both eyes are 6/6 combined though. I don't require glasses to fly in the civilian world and have no restrictions on my civvy CPL/cat 1 medical, however I would need correction to fly in the CF with V2.
I guess I'll find out for sure when the medical comes around, but man is it ever making me nervous. I have prescription glasses which bring both of my eyes to better than 6/6 which means my vision and corrective lenses are technically acceptable, but I haven't read about a success story from somebody with slightly imperfect vision corrected with glasses yet.
