    Hi,
    Does anybody know of an AME or Optometrist that has a falant lantern or Optec-900 near Chicago or in the Midwest? I need to take an alternate color vision test to get a restriction lifted of my medical. If you have any suggestions, please reply to this thread.

    Thanks,
    Paul

    Can you see the light guns at the airport? If so you can go that route. that is how I plan to take care of mine. AOPA had something on their website about how to go about this.

    Peoria is in the Midwest AND near Chicago.

    Dr. Bruce Chien (www.aeromedicaldoc.com) not only knows the ins and outs of a request like this, but I think he has just about every color vision testing equipment made in the modern and not so modern eras.

    hi Paul,
    I am an ophthalmologist/retina specialist in San Jose, California but I have lots of eyeMD friends in Chicago who can help you: Alice Lyons, MD at Northwestern U Med Center or Dr Jenny Lim,University of Illinois, Chair of Dept of Ophthalmology. This is my first post and I have had some pilot patients who all had questions about eye issues while flying. So I thought I would join this forum. Thanks Gloria

    Hi everyone! Hopefully I can pick up on this thread. Do you know of any eye doctors in the Philadelphia area who do the Falant/optec 900 test?
