    Can anyone recommend a doctor for the lasik because i was thinking about getting that done and have been starting to check around. Also was curious as to peoples workout's. As for me I've been running and doing alot of cardio and some lifting and alot more push ups and pull ups than I used to.

    Dont know if this will link right but its a video of the FDNY academy that someone made a mash up about.

    Gettingready6019 the guys did not look fat and out of shape but they were not ready for the exam it seems.

    PreEMT84 you can wear what ever you want. Some guys wore jeans I wore a pair of shorts under a pair of nike workout pants and a t-shirt.

    Queens6019 do you have to go to both those dates or one or the other? Anyone else get this in the mail?

    Regarding the lasik, do you need any sort of paperwork on the procedure or as long as you can see without glasses you're good to go?

    I still need to find out if it is necessary for me to get this to get on. Thanks in advance.

    Ant, i believe you are supposed to go to both, I dont think they are mandatory though. I am definetly going to go though to at least one ,to see the layout of the course, difference between the one they have set up at the rock, distance between events, etc

    There are always risks, and with LASIK, however miniscule they are at this point, they still exist and should be considered before going through with the procedure.

    Anyone know how to speak with someone ALIVE at DCAS? Every number I can find seems to be automated and pass me to other automated numbers. I want to get a little better timeframe. I have an obligation out of town at the end of March which, if the timeframe Lt. Cassiola spoke of is true, would be around in the thick of when they begin trial 1 of CPATs.

    I'd just like to know what kind of ballpark they have for beginning the CPAT trials and what kind of rescheduling options they have.

    I can trim a few days from the trip and most certainly will if they mean the job or not, but I'd like to try to save some money and book it right for the first time.

    It's kinda rough that they only give us one week notice for a lot of this stuff. I'm fortunate enough to have a flexible job, but I'd imagine there are people out there that can't go to a middle of the day CPAT orientation on 1 week's notice.

    Hey Red,

    Where did you go for Lasik and about how much did they charge you with the discount? (If you don't mind me asking.)

    Absolutely, but I also considered they would't pass me with corrective lenses and sadly, I couldn't see my hand in front of my face without contacts. That outweighed any doubts or worries I may have had-and I am very happy with the results. jmo

    I'm going to a doctor next week to set up my surgery. I was told 20/40 or better uncorrected is what is needed to pass. Mine is slightly less than that. Since I've considered this for some time, this is just the push I've needed to go ahead and get it done.

    I don't have any hard numbers yet, but I'm looking at around 5k I think.

    edit: I've not heard of any insurance covering this surgery yet, so everyone pays out of pocket I believe.

    mine was $4600 4 years ago, so it should be much cheaper by now. Also, some insurances do pay a percentage of it, look into it better.
