failed a color blindness test today. he was in the process of applying for pilot training. I checked wikipedia, and apparently there are lenses to partially correct the defect. anyone knows where i can get them? and does anyone here suffers from color blindless here? any help will be MUCH appreciated. thanks a lot.

My friend has it, I just laugh at him when we play video games because sometimes he can't tell what he is supposed to do when specific parts have to do with color.

Even if he were going to get the lenses, he wouldn't be allowed to be a pilot. You're not allowed to wear lenses in case they fall out at some crucial moment.

Guitar site is definetely the right place to look for specialist contact lenses.

why do you want to get them when he has the problem? Any way, get him to talk to his optician.

Because, he's a nice friend... I... I'm completely at a loss as to why you would even need to ask that... Are you... I give up.

i failed that test but i am not color blind. i got tested by my eye doctor and passed the second time. the reason i fail the first time was because of all things i was really hungry and the test was early so i didn't eat anything so it ****ed my ability to pass the test.

my point is was he fully prepared for the test? seems stupid but i guess you should make sure your ready to take the color blind test.

You can wear lenses and be a pilot.
But if you want to be a fast jet pilot going over 560mph, you have to have glasses that are tight fitting to the face but some are required to fit with a specialist helmet fitting.

Ahh, they must've changed it. Twenty years ago my dad was going to train to be in the RAF, but he was rejected because we wore lenses.

I'm mildly colorblind. Mostly with brown and green. I used to not be able to tell the difference between blue and purple, but not I mostly can. I dunno. It's never stopped me from doing anything (caused a few interesting clothing choices though).

As far as I know, you can't be a pilot unless you have pretty much perfect vision, without the aid of outside devices like contact lenses. That's what i've been told anyway.

i suffer from pretty bad colour blindness
but however i have been told i could pursue a flying carerr because most jets nowadays use blue light and if any excersise required colours i can be partnered with a non colour blind person

edit: also they probbably wont let you wear lenses to cheat it.
i was told i could pursue it because my version was perfect apart from that one problem
