Short-sighted? Do you know you can still be a fighter pilot??!!

Do you know that you can still be a pilot if you are short-sighted till 499 degrees?

This was someone that I discovered when I saw this billboard at the bus stop.

Colleague said that they will send you for lasik. Is it true?

If i'm not wrong, you can be a pilot, just not a fighter pilot. For example fly helicopters and transport aircraft

I don't know how much is 500 degrees. i'm going to google it! Because here I think we have differents kinds of measure

ok, is a degree the same as a dyopter? then it would be 5.00 degree not 500 degree in the ad
i'm getting into some trouble with that!
I have 2.5 dyopter in my left eye but in the right one it reaches until 9 dyopters!!
