    LASIK, Naval Vision requirements, MEPS, and Eligibility

    I had a conversation recently with my recruiter. He decided to look into vision requirements for unrestricted line officers after I informed him that I was open to seeking a commission as a SWO. I already took the ASTB-E (and have fairly competitive scores with my GPA), plan on going to MEPS, am...

    Would I still need Lasik?

    Hey everyone, I am a bit confused regarding the LASIK process... I can see 20/40 uncorrected, and 20/20 corrected, but according to the naval aeromedical guide my farsightedness correction can't be over a TOTAL of +3.00 diopters (I'm 3.25) combined both eyes Does that mean I would need...

Please this is keeping me up at night. I am...
