Hi I applied to join 4 years ago got an A grade at Glencourse but couldn't do my chosen job of aircraft technician due to my eyesight without glasses not being good enough. There were some jobs open to me but I went way and got laser eye surgery, has anyone applied after having this? I had a type of surgery accepted by the army and my eyes before had were within the limits.. I am looking at applying again as an army aircraft technician, I am now 27 now I can't see my age being a problem? What would do other people think?. I would be taking quiet a big pay cut as I earn about 25k at the moment working as a plumber, but I believe the career options in the army are far greater and it will be a career I really enjoy so money isn't really an issue.
