Field Of Vision

Sat Feb 05, 2000 11:53 pm

A question for anyone with firm knowledge of the eyesight requirements for both airliner and private pilots. I found out this week that I do not have a full field of vision in my right eye - I don't have the top left quarter, but the reason I have not noticed is because my left eye - which is 100% - makes up for it. Do the medicals for PPL and ATPL both require full field in both eyes or is it sufficient to have full using both?

Well if your eyesite is 20/20 then you do not have to much to worry about. When I went for my 1st class medical they just moved the pen left and right but not up and down. Also you can probably get this wavied if it is a problem I would not think it is to big of a deal.
