I'm aware that there are similar threads to this one but I just wanted a more specific answer. I have completed all my application forms and have a date for my BARB test. I'm going for The Parachute Regiment, but i'm a bit concerned as to whether I would be allowed to wear contact lenses firstly at basic training and then at ITC Catterick. Obviously there are quite a few night exercises and field exercises during training so they maight cause me problems there. I've asked my recruiter but he's not too sure on the topic. I've been wearing lenses for about 3 years now (i'm 16), and feel a lot more confident wearing lenses compared to glasses, however, if I did have to wear glasses I wouldn't really mind because my target is to just get in the Army. If anyone knows what the current policy is on wearing contact lenses, especially at Catterick, then any info would be greatly appreciated.
