he had an a fitting for new bins for his ressie at the med centre at raf lyneham about 2 months ago. he asked the question whether his eyesight was ok as he was mobilizing. told yup no worries.
2 weeks ago he had a re-enlistment medical and again asked the question and was told by blue job mo that he was fine as the regs have recently changed. med centre at chillwell quoted year 2000 regs
i wasn't sure wether this is the right place to ask or the med forum??
