  1. Hi,

    I know the army has strict requirements when it comes to medical assessments so I was just wondering if anyones knows anything about the tolerance for colourblindness?

    The careers adviser told me that it is allowed up to a certain level for different corps etc. and that I would be transfered to have my eyesight assessed.

    Any knowledge on this subject floating around?


    Also does anyone have a copy of the medical asessment form you have to take to your doctor?
  2. My Dad was in Royal Engineers and colour blind, thats all I know about colour blindness
  3. Im colour blind and passed AOSB, and have asked several times to have it assessed and they havnt
  4. So you failed the Ishara test and they still passed you?
