I am a consultant ophthalmologist as well as an AME, so I can carry out specialist eye examination at the time of your medical if this is necessary (normally the basic eye exam to AME standard is all that is needed).

This would need to be booked in advance so that we can arrange a longer appointment time. I normally expect you to bring the Med 162 form completed by your optometrist.

I charge £250 for consultant eye examinations, or £400 – £600 (depending on complexity) if you for eye examinations and a report for an aviation authority.

I may charge more for complex appeals to aviation authorities but I will agree a price with you for these unusual situations.

Due to the Covid-19 crisis, and the government’s advice on social distancing and non-essential journeys, and my return to NHS work, I am restricting the number and nature of pilot medicals I am booking. Clients should bear in mind that extensions to validity of commercial medical certificates have been adopted by the UK CAA. Please see their website for details. Before attending a medical, please confirm that you have not had symptoms in the last week, or have been in contact in the last two weeks with someone who has symptoms. Please wear a face covering to your medical. Please note that I will check your forehead temperature before proceeding on the day.
