Pilot medical

Can I become a pilot in Europe if I have a myopia of -11? (According to EASA rules), outside of Myopia my eyes are perfect (pressure, size, vision, color etc)

Or are there other ways to get an EASA license? (For example, obtain an FAA license and convert it to EASA) Does anyone have experience with this?

Thanks a lot for the help

The condition for receiving an easa medical is that your eye defect be correctable with lenses, if it is then its not an issue, they just write an OL on your medical that you must carry glasses

And whether you are converting to an EASA, or you are studying it as your first license, you still have to undertake an initial Class I medical check with the limitations stated in EASA regulations, no difference.

The EASA MED.B.070 Visual System states a maximum of -6 and so does the UK CAA PartMED system.

Check with your AME as it sounds like you need further assessment.
