Hey I am looking at the eyesight standards to join as a (millitry engineer)electrian in the royal engineers I have been looking through the pulheems to find the required standard for different jobs. From what I can tell electrian requires sight 8/2 in the right eye and 8/3 in the left eye. The numbers stand for: 6/6 = 1 6/9 = 2 6/12 = 3 6/18 = 4 6/24 = 5 6/36 = 6 6/60 = 7 less than 6/60 = 8 So you aren't required to see anything without your glasses which is 8 as 6/60 is the top letter on the opticans chart. And 8 standards for less then this. Can any one confirm if I'm understanding this right. Thanks for any help.
