    I'm a current Cadet, who recently went through the eye surgery process. Here is some information about it for prospective cadets who may be interested in what it entails.

    Thanks for this post, I was interested in getting eye surgery but I was worried that it wouldn't be possible if I went to the academy. Do they offer this program only when you're in a certain class (third class, second class, etc.)? Or can you go through it any year?

    DO NOT get surgery before you go. It will disqualify you. This program works well and they will do your eyes if needed.

    Rose,

    Additionally, your eyes may change and that is why they want to wait until you are @20. Our DS at 17/18 was considered on the cusp, by the time he was 20 his eyes had changed and he was no longer a candidate for the surgery, except for elective. He was cleared and is now an O2 pilot.
