I do not have "true" depth perception. I have actually learned it over time. I too, wear glasses. However, I have had no problem getting my drivers and pilots license, becuase of my learned perception. I did not go for a 1st class medical however, just the 3rd.

I guess I have also "learned" it but most of the times, it's so inaccurate I end up banging my head on the walls accidentally. And believe me, it does happen so I have to be very careful. I also knock my head against protruding objects from a ceiling (such as the airconditioner extension on the ceiling of a bus).
I guess I will just go for the Class 1 medical test. Thanks a lot folks!

I really didnt feel I had to good of eye sight before I went in for my 1st class med exam. And I passed with no restrictions. So go in there and see what happens... and do a 1st class. a 2nd or 3rd class for that matter will only leave you wondering if you can actually pass everything and have a career with flying.
