  1. Hi, my eyesight has been bugging me and i've joined to ask this question:
    My right eye is 6/9(probably slightly better)uncorrected
    My left eye is 6/6.I want to join the infantry but will my 6/9 vision in my right eye bar me from any jobs (i have no interest in being a sniper though,but full respect to all those who are),and will i have to wear glasses?
    I want to join 1 Royal Irish




    Thanks in advance for any answers.
     
  2. I am very sorry I don't know. What does your optician say?
