Medical Standards Indian Military

  • Hello everybody, I have a doubt regarding Medical standards in Indian Military (Flying branch). Its Regarding Lasik as i wear spects. IAF says, The post LASIK corneal thickness as measured by a corneal pachymeter should not be less than 450 microns.
    I found it out from various sources and discovered that it should be 470 microns or more. If its less than that, one is unfit for IAF flying. I am not able to figure out the exact correct information. Highly confused. Any help will be appreciated!! Any body from the forces, Please help. Regards.
  • Hi guys… as far as i know , Lasik is only permitted for ground duty officers in IAF, that too six months after the conduct of the same and in a comment it was mentioned that lasik is permitted for transports and hepters but not fighters. During IAF medicals, everyone is tested for being fighter pilot. After Stage I flying, pilots are tri-forcated into fighters, transports and hepters. And after that once you get commissioned in transports or hepters, then medicals standards go down a bit.
