EYESIGHT STANDARDS

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. Does anyone know if you can be discharged from the Army if your eyesight is below VA3? I have just tried to transfer to the Royal Navy but was rejected, because my uncorrected vision was worse than VA3, whilst undergoing the initial medical at HS Raleigh. The medical PO told me the army had known about this for 2.5 years and that I was not medically fit to serve and that I should of been discharged. If this is the case, how was I allowed to complete a tour in Iraq?
