I am seriously considering joining the RE, but I am a bit worried about how my eyesight might affect my options. My vision isn't too bad - I manage everyday life without any correction (just!), but need glasses for driving, so presumably would for any range stuff. I don't know what I would like to specialise in later, but was wondering if glasses/contacts would limit my choices? Specifically things like parachuting, diving, SF (who knows?!) If I had laser-eye surgery how would that affect what was open to me? I have read a bit about the "party line" regarding surgery, which seems to suggest it is just about tolerated (for most jobs) but not actively encouraged. Is it like that in reality? Do people think it will change in the future? I know the yanks encourage it, and it always seems like we are a couple of years behind them in stuff like this. Thoughts, please! Cheers.
