It's that time again. This year, I'm thinking I am not going to get away with stowing my glasses in my pocket and passing the third. I'm 20/20 with them on, so is there any disadvantage to getting the 2nd? Unless I am mistaken, the only difference is the vision requirements (and a shorter term). I'm unlikely to get my commercial in the next year, but anything's possible and my doctor charges the same for either.
