Would a squint have been 'looked for'(!) and, if noticed, be mentioned to a pilot or written up during a test.

I am developing such a thing and want to know if any signs would be on my records.

I have had many years of RAF pilot annual checks and latterly civilion ones. My last check was nearly 10 years ago. I'm retired now - hence no recent tests.

Are you starting to develop one now? A squint that's not present since childhood is worth investigating.

(I had one corrected - but not completely - and although noticed at my initial class one has never been mentioned by an AME in 10 years of subsequent medicals).
