Someone gets glasses to correct myopia (nearsightedness) and as a result gets the endorsement in his licence stating that he need to have the glasses with him at all times when flying. What if this same person's vision improved within a year or so and he passes a JAA visual exam with out the glasses, will he get the glasses endorsement in his licence removed?
Are any of you commercial jet pilots in a visual field (distance vision) like this:
Left eye 6/15, right eye 6/12 and both eyes - 6-9?
If yes. what do you do?

Are there any commercial pilots out there in this situation:
You have distance vision 6/12 in both eyes and corrected it with glasses to pass your medical therefore gettong the endorsement in your licence to operate at all times with your glasses. Do you happen to see okay without the glasses (even though you are 6-12 in both eyes) and hence do not wear them but keep them with you in the cockpit?
I wonder if any airline pilots out there are in a position like this - i just need some reassurance.
