Eyesight on medical

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. I've got my medical next month and have a question about eyesight requirements. I wear contact lenses and my presciption is about -6.00. I've got a feeling my eyesight will not be good enough to pass the medical.

    What do you fellas think?
     
  2. I'm sure if you used search you can come up with the min requirements but your best bet is to go along and find out.
     
  3. Is that -6.00 mean?
     
  4. -6.00 is what it says on my contact lens packets.

    I think I'll sail through everything on my medical apart from this. Is there anyway around it?
     
  5. Blimey I was -3 and 2.5 - you must be a real Mr Magoo - get laser surgery and reapply in a year
     
  6. Gutted! I'll still go to the medical and see what happens but I guess it will be a waste of time.
