I'm just hoping I can get PRK done ASAP whenever I'm done with all the Officer training.

my husband recently got some "better" glasses to go overseas with. there not as bad as the BCG, but not great either. needless to say, we invested in a nice pair for him for his downtime.

My son was on a waiting list for PRK & when his number came up he was deployed. This had happened to a bunch of guys in the 3rd Batt. so when they came back from deployment this time they scheduled time for all of them to finally get the procedure done. This time my son didn't qualify because his eyes weren't bad enough. Needless to say he was disappointed. Now he'll have to have it done on his own dollar.

Dude.. just stick it out, and wait for the Army to pay for your 5k dollar PRK surgery. Hell, I did basic and 2 ait's in BCG.. so can you!
but all these people on "waiting lists".. what is this? "Waiting list"? heh. I love being in an infantry unit at for Bragg. Can you say same-week-preop? I could
