The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Hi, im looking to go into the British Infantry soon, but first im getting LASEK wavefront eye surgery, contact lenses and glasses are too much of a vulnerability. I hear i have to wait 12 months after having it done, is this true?
  2. Not sure for certain but if i was you I'd be phoning the AFCO for a DEFINITIVE answer...
  3. Will do, thanks
  4. Gutting, i thought as much, guess il just read a book for a year, thanks
  5. Im thinking of getting contact lenses for when I go back to the army , I mean I can't see much that Would go wrong if you had them , I currently should be wearing glasses but they are far too un-comfortable for me.
  6. I was gonna settle for lenses but everytime i run or itch my eye they fall out, and i can't see shit without them ha
