I have in the past been a member of the reserve forces; and wish to get back into it; pushing myself to attempt UKSF(R) or RMR selection. I had a UKSF(r) medical last year which I failed due to poor eysight, particularly in one (right) eye. My left was not perfect but was within the tolerated boundries. I was told to go away, get an eye test "get it sorted in whatever way" and re presesnt myself for a secong med. Having had the eye test I now have a prescription confirming I have an astygmatism, in both eyes slighlty but worse in my right; not bad enough to need glasses day to day. I have been told if I present myself for a medical with the script/glasses I could pass the standard medical but would NOT pass the UKSF(R) med due to wearing glasses/contacts; however if I had laser surgery I would pass, but not be alowed to attempt selection for at least 12 months after the operation. Does anyone have any experiance of this or clarity on the situation? Are RMR's rules on this the same as UKSF(R)? Should I just re joing a normal TA unit, get the op done, bide my time them apply? Thanks a lot in advance.
