Hi Sorry if this has been covered before I had a flick back but couldn't find any related posts. I was under the impression that i would need perfect eyesight to fly and as I am fractionally short sighted I'd never even looked into it. I was informed recently though that this is not the case. I've just taken a look at the army website and it would appear that slightly less than perfect eyesight is acceptable as long as it is correctable. My problem is that the information given on the army site about what is acceptable is in a different format than the information then my perscription so I do not know if I am within the limits aloud. I will put both the army info and my perscription below to see if anybody can enlighten me. Off army site: Visual Acuity without spectacles: 6/12 Visual Acuity with spectacles: 6/6 Lens power: Minus .75 Dioptres to Plus 1.75 Dioptres Astigmatism: Maximum .75 Dioptres My perscription: Sphere Cylinder Axis Distance acuity: Right 6/45 Left 6/6 (It does not say whether this is when corrected or not) Right -1 -0.25 80 Left -1.5 -0.5 160 Any light anybody could shed on this would be a great help.
