Default Glasses for Basic & OCS

Hey guys,
I'm currently pursuing Army's OCS. I want to fly but I guess I'm going to have to work my way up to it. For one thing, my vision is 20/200 uncorrected in both eyes. From what I've read, I'm going to have to get the huge ugly glasses with a strap for Basic and OCS. Aren't these going to be a pain?

Would you recommend looking into PRK before I go to basic in about 5 months?

If so, are there documents on what the pre-op and post-op requirements are and if PRK is the right surgery to get? Am I better up toughing through it and have the Army do it for free after I'm commissioned?

Thanks in advance for your thoughts.
