I'd lay off the PRK or any surgery unless the Army clears you for it. You might have to wait a few months before enlisting. Better check it out from a recruiter before electing to get the surgery. Don't go the Lasik route. the last I heard you have to wait a year after surgery to enlist.

The Army is offering PRK surgery but you'll be put on a waiting list. My son's been on one for over a year. Every time his number comes up he's overseas.

As far as the Birth Control Devices - eveyone who wears glasses will be wearing them. Just like your haircut; everyone will look the same. You won't be standing alone in a crowd. Be glad you don't have to pay for those ugly monsters! I'm sure you wouldn't like to break your custom stylish $500 glasses in training. Once out of BCT & OCS you can wear your own specs. I don't wear glasses but if I did I'd rather wear issue glasses in a combat situation.
