If I have bad vision but wear glasses and I have good hearing will I still be EligibleNovember 19, 2022 at 2:23 pm #57175Lester – Epic StaffKeymaster
As long as your vision can be corrected to 20/20 with glasses or contacts, you will be eligible for a First Class FAA Medical Certificate, which makes you eligible to fly as a civilian professional pilot. This is much less restrictive than military pilot vision requirements.January 18, 2024 at 5:20 pm #75487GeorgeNotClooneyParticipant
Lester from Epic Staff has rightly pointed out that having glasses or contacts isn’t a barrier to becoming a professional pilot as long as your vision can be corrected to 20/20. This is a common concern among aspiring pilots, and it’s great to know that vision correction is widely accepted in the aviation industry. My dad has myopia and is doing well with his glasses during the flight, sometimes he wears contact lenses. However, he still prefers glasses, because it doesn’t make his eyes hurt and itchy, plus all his prescribed glasses are super affordable from https://lowcostglasses.co.uk/glasses/male/ , so he isn’t afraid of losing or breaking them.
