Hi Basically I'm a 2 year uni student, 4 year course, and I'm considering joining after I graduate. I'm really just at the stage where I'm reading, and seeing if I am eligible and if its the right choice for me. Anyway the real question. I wear glasses, I'm not super blind, I'm within the army's limits, however I know I would be pretty useless without them. After watching documentaries of the armed forces, I really wouldn't fancy wearing them while serving. With this and my own interests considered, I've been thinking about laser eye surgery. Not the crappy cheap stuff, the decent clinics and looking at the types the army allows. I know (at least I think I know) the army has a 1 year medical lay off between surgery and applications, but I don't really know what I would do with this time. Is there anything that is really worthwhile doing, in terms of strengthening my application rather than just bumming around waiting? Also does anyone have any experience of wearing glasses or of having laser eye surgery in the army? Hope I haven't too much of a noob question.
