Army Hey I have C/P this below from an old thread I found. I want to join the REME my eyesight is correctable to 6/6, 6/4 it says my vision is with my contacts on my prescription. And my eyesight is within the -7 diopters of correction. I am -5 diopters, from that information it sounds as though I may be able to join the REME. Can any on clarify my thoughts. Minimum visual standards Candidates for the Royal Military Academy, Sandhurst who are to join the Infantry, Foot Guards or Parachute regiment may be accepted with a visual acuity of 6/9 or above in the right eye, otherwise candidates for the Royal Military Academy, Sandhurst, Army Scholarships and University Cadetships require a minimum visual acuity with spectacles of 6/6 in one eye and not less than 6/36 in the other. Normally the right eye must be correctable to 6/6 except in R Signals, RAChD, Army Medical Service, REME, AGC and Int Corps where the right eye may be the worse. Officer cadets for RLC must have the vision in the left eye correctable to 6/12. Soldiers are accepted with a minimum corrected visual acuity between 6/6 and 6/12 depending on the regiment or corps, in the right eye, and 6/36 in the left eye. Driving grades require vision in the left eye to be correctable to 6/12, and certain safety critical trades require vision to 6/6 bilaterally with spectacles. Myopia exceeding 7 dioptres in any meridian in either eye or hypermetropia exceeding 8 dioptres precludes acceptance even if vision is correctable to the required standard.
