Pilots must meet many physical and emotional requirements before ever stepping into cockpit.  Good vision is one of them.  For people who want to become pilots, whether civilian or military, vision requirements need to be examined and discussed with the staff at Donelson Eye Associates in Greenville, SC.

While LASIK provides an excellent vision correction 
result for most people, the FAA’s has its own position regarding flight status and LASIK, which sometimes changes from time to time.  The military also has established policy on vision requirements and whether or not LASIK surgery can meet the requirements for a future pilot.

Finding a LASIK specialist in your area who is familiar with the unique vision demands of pilots is critical.  At Donelson Eye Associates in Greenville, SC, we can discuss your vision needs and how they may impact career aspirations.  Contact us for a consultation.
