In order to perform this exam, our optometrist has undertaken further training to be qualified to perform the eye examination required by the Civil Aviation Authority for flying.
This is an extensive eye examination, requiring the use of various investigative techniques and various eyedrops to anaesthetize the cornea and dilate the pupils. Your eyesight will be blurry and sensitive to light for about 4-6hours post-examination. For safety reason, we recommend that you ask a family member or friend to drive you to the appointment and pick you up afterwards.
You are required to provide photographic identification at the appointment to confirm your identity (valid passport or driver’s licence), the details of the medical officer that looks after your application, any habitual spectacles and standby pair, sunglasses and/or contact lenses for testing purpose and once we have completed the examination, we will send your CAA special eye report directly to the medical officer in charge. Our optometrist is a designated examiner for CAA for Class 1, Class 2, and Class 3.
