Hi Everyone
I have about 3,500 hrs in helicopters, about 1,000 in GOM.

Not been flying recently, young family etc

I can just get 20/25 on a good day with soft contacts or glasses or even machine at the eye doctors.

Recently tryed hard contacts but they didnt help

Lasik say they cant correct any better than contacts or glasses

Have seen specialist for Retina and cornea and they cant find any problems apart from small amount of astigmatism and trace of cataract, which they didnt think was the problem with my inability to get good 20/20

I am 44, and without any correction get about 20/60, or 20/70

One of the doctors said i may have never had 20/20, and just been squinting at eye exam to get through

1)  Do any eye exercises help at all

2)  How much affect could eye drops have, they do help i know, but a lines worth ?  

Any thoughts / ideas appreciated

I have 20/20 & struggled a bit to read that line. After 9 months of taking a vitamin A supplement at my next medical I could read the 20/10 line with a little squinting. Just had another exam, 20/15 this time.
