Have any current controllers had eye surgery while controlling? I have some questions.
That’s stupid. Getting lasik has been the single best quality of life improvement I’ve ever done.Thanks all for the responses. I asked around at my facility the most people say don't bother with it, since the FS could pull my medical and make me jump through hoops to get it back.
I heard that too before I did it. I think the process used to be a lot more difficult, because all of the previous generation at my facility tried to talk me out of it. I agree with the above though, it is incredible.Thanks all for the responses.

Was that just another eye exam?I got my lasik right before the academy after getting my tol but before my medical. had to do that extra 6 month check while i was at the academy. failed some kinda test, had to go retake it and tell the doctor to be sure he got the right numbers on that test lol. had no problems when I got my last medical taken in january though.
Yeah you'll need an eye exam at 6 months whether you're in the academy or a controller already. They give you a six month temporary medical clearance. For all of your exams there's an FAA eye exam form you bring and have your doctor fill outWas that just another eye exam?
