Does anyone know whether the condition "Lazy Eye" or the medical term Amblyopic is a reason to fail the medical?
no, not nessicarily. Someone I talked to in the army had 4 operations on his lazy eye. 2 before and 2 after joining the army.The_0ne said:Does anyone know whether the condition "Lazy Eye" or the medical term Amblyopic is a reason to fail the medical?
The standard personal weapon is the SA80 and this requires vision in the right eye to be correctable to no less than 6/9. Vision in the left eye must be correctable to no less than 6/36. Spectacle correction must be no greater than -7diopters or +8 in any meridian.
Certain types of surgery or laser treatment to correct visual defects are unacceptable and clarification should be sought prior to application.
The standards required by the Army Air Corps are higher than for other branches: applicants should check current standards with the Army Air Corps.
A lazy eye IN your left eye? Having two left eyes would be considered a bit of a hindrance to joining.How did it go? i have lazy eye in my left eye, its not bad nor is it amazing, and my right eye has over compensated and is really good.
