I went for a medical this morning and was informed I had heterophoria, which is a condition that causes the eyes to unconsciously deviate from a given point after stimuli have gone. It apparantly increases risk of double vision when tired or when hypoxia occurs.
The doctor said he would have to check with the flight surgeon about it and if need be, I would have to apply for a waiver. However, his tone was not promising whatsoever.
Anyone have experience with this? What are my chances?
PS yes I have experience double vision before, but I find it easy to snap out of (it's harder to keep the condition than to snap out of it). A few family members I have spoken with say they have never experienced it. Any experience with this, or am I really an oddball?
