Medical - Lazy Eye

Discussion in 'The Training Wing' started by The_0ne, Feb 4, 2007.

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 whether the condition "Lazy Eye" or the medical term Amblyopic is a reason to fail the medical?

  2. Laziness should be punished at every opportunity.

  3. As long as you weren't like this as a child, you should be ok.

  4. 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.

    From the army website (old one):

    Go to your local optition and ask him/her/it what your eyes are at.

    PS. This is for Officers i think, but it is probably the same or similar for rankers
  5. Delete this please
  6. Cheers for that Mazur
  7. what site did you get that bit on eyesight... Ive actually just finished applying and I am shortsighted in my left eye, my right eye is perfect tho.
    waiting for medical.

  8. 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.
  9. Uzi......

  10. A lazy eye IN your left eye? Having two left eyes would be considered a bit of a hindrance to joining.

    Now the sarcasm is out of the way, try looking on here for JSP 950.
