Ive just recieved some paper work to take to my GP for my medical. Im wanting to go into the rifles, 5RRF but i wear contact lenses, would this in any way stop me from being in a infantry battalion? Reading through the paperwork it says that i have to get another form to take to my optician so he can fill it in. Im just a bit worried because that is the battalion i would like to go in and would hate to be knocked back due to my eyesight. The reason im asking is, a few year ago, my mate who wore glasses got knocked back from the infantry in the regs because of his eyesight. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
