I want to ask you if that limitation (as is not an operational limitation... only a medical limitation that says I have to make a full ophthalmological exam each 2 years) is a problem to apply to airlines (or if a pilot with that limitation is unlikely to get selected).
Very interesting ! Must admit that after 27 years in this business I had never even heard of the RXO limitation until today ! It does not appear to be used, at least in the UK. This CAA document (from 5 years ago) mentions it, but says it's "superfluous" and that the UK will not be applying it ! (page 7 of 7).

Since then, of course, we have moved from JAR to EASA, but I still don't think this has any useful place in modern aeromedical certification.
