If you have been considering laser surgery to correct your vision, please
be aware of some possible pitfalls. While these procedures have become
relatively common, UAL still requires up to six months of "stabilization"
before you can return to work. This is much more restrictive
than the latest FAA policy, which can take as little as a week. If
you are considering this type of surgery, make sure you get all the facts!
