  1. Hi guys!

    There are other posts regarding this but I'm not exactly sure what all the big fancy words mean. Basically all I know about my eyesight is that my left eye is -3.75 and my right eye is -4.75. Does anybody know if this is acceptable to join the Royal Military Police?

    Thanks in advance,

    Lauren X
     
  2. Lauren, those numbers form part of your prescription i.e. the way the lens needs to be shaped in order to improve your eyesight. It's not a measure of visual accuity.

    For RMP the standards are...

    Left eye - with glasses 6/36 (2nd line down on a standard eye chart)
    Without glasses - basically 'see the chart'

    Right eye- with glasses 6/12 (5th line down on a standard eye chart)
    Without glasses - basically 'see the chart'

  6. If you are NOT a troll, try the recruiting office - they're not opticions but I'm sure they know the paremeters.
