CASA Class one renewal age related tests

I am about to renew my class one medical and have noticed on the MRS that it requires another Ophthalmology test, however I only had my initial last year which required an Ophthalmology report. (And they aren't exactly cheap either)

I have since turned 25 and thought it may be an age related test, however 'Special Tests' the chart on the CASA website (https://www.casa.gov.au/files/avmedreferencechart2png-0) says that eye is not required for age 25 renewal.

Just wondering if anyone can provide any guidance on this. Am I missing something or is it an MRS issue?

Cheers,

Hi, I had a similar situation several years ago when I was required to undertake an ophthalmology assessment at about 56. I failed it due colour blindness but then found out later that no such assessment was required. The "efficient" CLARC girl said that all DAMES should know of this error.

I would therefore email CASA's aviation medicine department and get this confirmed.

Good luck...

VH-MLE - Thanks for that advice. I have called them and they advised that the ophthalmology report was not entered correctly from my initial so the fixed it up, and now not required.

10 points to CASA for answering the phone and fixing it up within 2 minutes

Goodo, pleased to hear it. Just the same, I would always recommend email i.e. a paper trail rather than phone...
