I was furious with myself, because I had another consultant's report also saying I was fine which made no mention of migraines (which were unrelated to the eye problem) which I could have used instead.
Which means I'm in the same boat as you; I'd like to do a CPL but can't.
Anybody else as horrified about this as I am? I read this as "I can't fly commercially because I was careless and failed to let my AME continue to ignore a medical problem."
To quote an old boss of mine "Before taking any decision in aviation, always think of the subsequent Board of Inquiry".
In this case think of the discussion here where we were discussing the AAIB report saying "the pilot had a history of migraines that he had never declared" following, say, a loss of control in IMC.
Or even "the AME had been made verbally aware of this condition, but in contradiction of written instructions had not ensured that this was further investigated".
That, depending upon outcomes could be deaths, criminal prosecution, or a physician being struck off. Or Germanwings 9525 where an airline co-pilot and his doctors conspired to conceal a mental health problem from his airline and authorities.
I am Spartacus, and so is my co-pilot.
