Some newbie questions from a potential candidate.

Do you even need contacts to drive with a -1.05?

I wouldn't think that would be a problem, I joined years ago with -4.25/-4.5 corrected to 0.0 by glasses/contacts.

Though you may want to wear glasses not contacts on field exercises.. unless you have those new fangled wear for a month without removing jobbies.

If you do go for laser eye surgery it is worth paying the extra for the wavefront mapping.. especially if you have astigmatism.

I had wavefront lasik done 4 years ago and my eyesight is nigh on perfect, bottom line of the chart is readable.
I hate glasses. Really do.

And to answer your question, no, I don't really need contacts to drive. But if I don't wear them(or glasses) I've been told it will get worse over time. Thanks for the input about the surgery. I barely know anything about the treatment.
