I know that there is eye glass inserts for SCBA masks however I was looking for a RX plastic wrap that I could put on my mask, is there such a thing? Contacts are another option but they wont be very helpful when I roll out of bed a 4AM.
I hope to have surgery someday to fix my eyes but until then im still hard of seeing. Any help is appreciated!
inserts are readily available and can fit into your facepiece for a relatively minimal charge. I'd inquire to your station captain (or senior officer). The Inserts are permanently placed there, you may need your own facepiece if you aren't issued one off the bat
If you have a drug plan you can get the lenses put in place at a lenscrafters, hakim or prescription eyewear store
Essentially, it does the same thing as laser surgery. Flattens your cornea while you sleep and when you pop them out you have 20/20 vision if not better. After wearing them for some time, its not uncommon to go 2 days without having to wear them again with maintaining good vision. Best thing is, it's reversible. You simply stop wearing them. I've been told by 2 opthamologist (both able to do the surgery) to not get laser surgery, I'd regret it by the time I was 40 (approx. 10 yrs away). I know ppl who have had excellent results with laser surgery and know ppl that have had poor results.
Just another option out there that's a fraction of the cost of laser.
