    Morning All,

    Looking for a little advice, apologies if its in the wrong thread.

    I had my medical just over a week ago, I didn't pass as my right eye is 6-90 instead of the minimum required. I believe its 6-60?
    I spoke to my AFCO and he advised me that I am PMU.
    He told me that the only way I could join is by having laser eye surgery.

    I wondered if someone could give me any guidance as to how long I would have to wait post surgery before re-applying? I am planning on having it done sooner rather than later, I wondered if there was a slight possibility that I could still make it onto the 2021 YO batch - provided I pass the POC & AIB etc.

    Thanks Melt.

    Wait into you are over the age of 22 years or you will be PMU for ever.
