        They'll send you to a contractor that routinely does physicals for employment purposes. Its basically a standard physical. As for the colorblindness, I might have a little more experience with that than some of the other guys here. They will give you the standard Ishihara test, which is the numbers within the circles. If you fail that, like I did, they'll send you a second packet to see your own doctor/optometrist, at your own cost, to do secondary tests. The second colorblind test is the Farsnworth D-15, where you place colored tiles in order of their shades. Look it up online if this is going to be an issue for you. Anyway, long story short, I'm just colorblind enough to not be able to see the numbers, but I can pass the D-15 no problem, so colorblindness isn't always a disqualifier.

          Great information, thanks. I sort of have an issue with the Ishihara test, but with little time I get most of them right, as for the Farsworth D-15, I get those right all the time, so I was a little scared because of the Ishihara test.

          Did you end up passing the eye exam?

          • Yeah, it was not a problem at all. I knew it was going to be a problem from the beginning, so I was just very upfront and truthful with everything too, I didn't try to hide anything. Right now I'm just waiting on my FLETC date and final offer.

                      That's a big disappointing negative. Maybe they forgot to return to the office after Thanksgiving. Oh well, maybe next week? haha
