So, whilst I’ve been doing a lot of study and research, I realized I really need to put a pin in all that until I actually find if I’m able to get a first class medical. In the interest of both saving money and expediting the process as much as I’m capable of, I want to come fully prepared.
Right off the bat, I have two DUIs from roughly 10 years ago when I was 22, within 5 months of each other. I doubt the circumstances really matter; and I never try to make excuses for such things as it sounds like I believe I was justified, but I need to know what to bring regarding that. I looked it up on the DPS website, the first happened Nov 2012 and the second in April 2013. Have had no incidents or even traffic violations since then if it makes a difference.
Do I need to schedule with any specific kind of AME regarding that? I don’t want to waste time and money to just be referred to someone else on the issue.
I plan on getting Lasik eye surgery beforehand. I do have recent (May 2022) optometrist tests and documents that show my eyesight is correctable to 20/20 but i’m not sure if AME would accept that or if I would need to have my eyes corrected to the 20/20 by the time I arrive (either by corrective surgery or prescription lens) Does anyone have any advice or experience with people who’ve had lasik going to an AME?
