Welcome to the Navy Net aka Rum Ration

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial RN website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. What Visual Acuity Standard would I have to reach if I wear glasses? I wear them all the time because seeing in the distance for me is blurry.

    Can you see how many fingers I'm holding up? Me neither. :wave:

    The only way to find out for sure is to copy'n'paste the standards & take them to your optician so they can grade your eyesight by your prescription. Beware trying to translate your prescription or accepting a random punt from an unqualified individual as it's not as straight forward as many imagine.
     
  7. Basically my eyes are probably really bad... Really don't want to fail!

  8. So you are 5'3" and blind, is there anything else?
     
  9. I'm not blind

    Shame. I think Sharkey thought he was in with a chance if you were visually and vertically challenged, with only one leg. 8O

  15. OK lets start again, you said you were 5' 3" and your eyes are really bad, correct so far?
     
  16. That's what I think, but I can see without my glasses, just a bit blurred that's all

  19. You cant change your eyeballs anyway so just go along to the eye test and see what they say. No point worrying/asking now as no one can say indefinitely 'you'll be fine' which is what you want to hear.

    Also i heard the word 'rats' being thrown around, my favourite type of chap. A/S/L?
     
  20. But what happens if I don't pass it? Surely they can't just throw you out
