astigmatism

#1
Hi guys,

I've recently had my eyes tested and the results are worrying!

I'm due to have an interview at OCLC plymouth on the 19th of January, with my intentions to join as aircrew (pilot).

I've trawled through all the threads, and I can't find any answers to my question, but sorry in advance if i haven't found any.

Basically my prescription says this:


Dist sph cyl axis
Right plano -1.75 95
Left -0.25 -0.50 80

Aided va
Right 6/5
Left 6/5

is this still within the grade I boundaries?

any help would be great

thanks a lot

Chris

Here's the minimum standards for Visual Acuity 1:

Standard I (VA1)

Visual acuity to be achieved without correcting lenses Right 6/12N5, Left 6/12N5

Visual acuity to be achieved with correcting lenses Right 6/6N5, Left 6/6N5

Refraction limit:
Total hypermetropia +3.00 sphere
Astigmatism +1.25 cyl
Myopia (in any meridian) -0.75 sphere or cyl +3.00 sphere

I'm slightly confused by this table. are these numbers either side of zero (i.e long or short sightedness), or just (for example) + is stated in the table, but my prescription is for a negative correction. where do i stand?
