do you know what dioptres your eyes are, i think the navy pass eyes that are anything up too -7 or +8 dioptres so if your within that band you should pass.

Correct me if i'm wrong though guys.

Hmm i was wondering about this aswell. I'm in the same boat and i've been waiting for my raleigh date for around 7 months now. I don't wanna wait for a long period, get to Raleigh and then told i can't continue because of my eyes. Bit worried about it actually.

AFAIK, all that happens in RALEIGH is a Snellen chart test (ie reading the chart from 6 metres). Shouldn't be too stressful!

Those that undergo an eyetest as part of the Medical Examination prior to entry should have no specific concerns if they were passed fit, unless they were borderline VA3 to VA4 and/or their eyesight has deteriorated further since the optician report.

Why are you still panicing for? You were passed fit prior. The doc said "reading the chart from 6 metres" Yet you still dribbling on.
