Hi, i've been wanting to join the army since i have just left school. Looking around the internet i can't find any answers to my question. Anyway, i spoke with an army careers officer today online and asked him about wearing glasses in the British Infantry. He said; "The Minimum standards for both uncorrected and corrected vision are determined by service medical staff and are dependent on the proposed employment and branch/trade group. Spectacle or contact lens corrections must not be greater then -7 dioptres or +8 dioptres in any meridian. Impaired colour perception (colour blindness) is not a bar to service, but may limit your career choices. You will need to have a copy with you of any acuity prescription from your optician when you go for your medical examination." Here are my prescription results: Right Eye: Sph -1.25 Cyl -0.50 Axis 80 Left Eye: Sph -1.50 Cyl -0.25 Axis 100 Cheers, looking for the answer has been driving me insane. If you can answer it that would be great. Thanks Hayden.
