Please tell me you didn't have PRK done and try to sneak it by before you went in active duty in hopes of getting a flying slot. The military has been watching for that since the 1980s.
For a long time the Navy only accepted PRK, LASIK was no go due to concerns about the flap coming loose in an ejection.

RK never allowed, for good reasons.
