How many pilots do you know that have lost their Class 1 Medical Certificate?

How many pilots do you know that have lost their Class 1 Medical Certificate?
How many pilots reach retirement age?
Also are pilots allowed to wear lens/glasses or have eye surgery?
Thanks

Joe,

I personally know about 2 dozen pilots who have lost their medicals. Some have gotten them back, some not.

As for how many reach retirement I have no clue.

Many pilots wear glasses or have surgery. As long as your vision is correctable to 20/20 you’re all good.

Thanks pilot joe

Joe,

I don’t have specific numbers on it, but I would say that the vast majority of pilots reach retirement age and do not lose their medical certificates.

I have had Lasik and continue to wear corrective lenses, both are fine with the FAA.
