How ya doing?
I have an inquiry, which is specific to the FDNY medical exam.
I took the written and physical tests a couple years ago, and finally got called for my interview over the summer. I've since been told that my medical and physcological exams will be coming up this month and if I'm clear I'll be heading to the academy in January or March. I wear contact lenses and have been told that you can't get in with corrective lenses by an investigator, however when I call the FDNY medical office one person tells me that I'm fine and then another tells me you have to get lasik surgery. Does anyone in the FDNY medical office know what is going on? Also there were guys in my CFRD class who wore glasses and got in no problem. Does it all depend on how the Doctor feels that day? I've been waiting for 4 years and no where in any of the paper work does it say you can't get in with glasses. Does anyone have any info on this? It would be much appreaciated as I think it's unfair that they string you along for years and fail to mention this until the very end.
Sorry for the rant
