Hello everyone, I was wondering if anyone could tell me why BUMED NPQd me for flight after I had successful PRK surgery done. From what I understand the eyesight requirements for Naval Aviation are: -20/40 max correctable to 20/20 -refraction less than 6.00 sphere/less than -3.00 cylinder -depth perception required -no color blindness Before surgery the only category that I did not fall under was the 20/40 correctable to 20/20. I checked my eyesight medical records and saw that my refraction limits were well under those listed so that was fine, and I have passed both color blindness and depth perception tests. I had PRK done in August 2010 and everything went perfectly. I ended up with 20/15 vision (better than 20/20) and no complications ever arose. When trying to apply to be a pilot my recruiter told me that he submitted all of my paperwork to get a waiver approved and allow me to apply for pilot but he emailed me an attached letter from BUMED that said I was physically qualified to be in the Navy but it also said "3. Note: not qualified for 1390 due to excessive uncorrected visual acuity." Why would they NPQ me if I had successful surgery with all of the necessary paperwork? All of the documentation on it was submitted after the 6-month waiting period as well. The only possible thing I can think of is that I had my MEPS physical done prior to getting PRK done so maybe for some reason BUMED just looked at that and somehow didn't know I had the surgery done even though I gave all of that paperwork to my recruiter? I am very happy that I was selected for NFO on the recent board and I realize that it is too late to try to get everything resolved to apply to be a pilot, but I just don't understand why I was NPQd in the first place for pilot. Any help will be greatly appreciated.
