Medical Color Vision


Hi All!

I have a friend who just failed his medical because of the color vision test. He is a D1 and was almost D2...he didn’t know he had a color vision deficiency, as he passed his initial medical to get hired. He has to wait to take an alternative test with the flight surgeon. Apparently the test can say you are only qualified for ERAM, Stars, or arts. He is afraid of failing the eram portion and only being eligible for a tracon or tower. Would the FAA then place him at a different facility? Has anyone had any experiences like this?
