    Regarding the Cheapies from CVS, Yes protector343 you may be right however I did not need or ever needed a prescription for glasses. I have had 20/20 for years and only recently this year began using the cheapies (called cheapies because of the price by the way and not the inferior quality of the lenses) they are available at these various stores with very minimal magnification and that is why they are approved and sold. I made it very clear at the pretest that they were just that, low grade reading glasses that help when i do just that read. Let me go on. During the testing it was asked by those administering the vision test if you have reading glasses that you should not wear them during the first part of the test which was for distance. Also to allow your eyes to adjust if you had just worn them. During the test the tester had me do distance and then short distance. I was doing well but then I was asked to put my glasses on for distance????? Really? I complied and well the obvious... did not pass. Oh yes , Protector343, something is missing here. Long story short was told I had 20/70 vision. Also should get Lasik surgery. Last night went to Lasik center and was completely tested. The specialist Doctor made it very clear, my vision is between 20/20 and 20/30, not20/70. He said emphatically I was tested incorrectly. I have been calling all day and sending E-mails like crazy. I am looking to get retested and also see if an Independent specialist would be allowed for passing the vision test.
    hey law and order... your story is a very familiar one. were you tested at affiliated physicians in NYC?

    • Hey everybody,
      I went to my pre-screening last Thursday. I have a question, I took the vision test with and without my contacts on, and when I asked the woman who was giving me my date for my full medical (April 13th) how my vision was, she said my vision was ok. My question is, do they test you on your vision again for the full medical? Thanks in advance if anyone knows.

      • Lol! The pepper spray comments are funny!

        I'm slightly concerned (yet not so much because it's the county) I called two different people last week to get my pre-med date and no one has gotten back to me yet.

        Wait it out or be persistent?

          Yes they do, everything was repeated along with hearing, chest x-ray, urine and blood tests.

              Thanks, Floats. I'm not sure why they retest for the vision, it's not gonna change in a month. But, that has me nervous, this nurse says my vision was ok and watch the next one for the full medical will tell me it's not ok!

                  • Hey guys, have a couple of questions I could use some help with.

                    First off...I'm currently in the process going through my background investigation. I've been reading here that, at this point, I don't really have to be concerned about the list expiring? That I'm far along enough in the process that Im safe? Am I understanding that correctly?

                    Also....we're planning to book a family vacation in Oct of 2015. We're trying to get all our ducks in a row now and I'm not sure what to do. Right now there is no academy planned but I'm hoping something happens this summer....figure June/July. That would have me graduating right around the time I'm planning to go away.

                    Has anyone here been through a situation like this before? I'm going to go ahead and assume they don't make exceptions for previously booked vacations when entering the job from the academy?

                    • Don't bother booking or cancel it if you can. There are no vacations in the academy and that's it. Take it or leave it. Giving one vacation up is plenty worth a career. I went through the same issue ad did not book one because I thought I may go. And then a few weeks before I was going to leave had I booked I got the call

                        Thanks, yes....I know there are no vacations during an academy. I was asking about after graduation when you first get assigned to your command.

                        • Pace..... Right now it is important to stay focus on getting into the Academy and getting through it as well. Any vacation time afterwards, you are thinking way to in advance for the moment before you. In time if you get into the Academy and make it through graduation you will have in your future more than enough time to plan a vacation. All the best to all present and future candidates.
