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. A previous (2008) thread on eyesight standards on applying to join the RN saw Ninja_Stoker advise the following standards must be achieved:

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

    Regarding Astigmatism, where do these figures sit - pass or fail?:
    -0.75 (right) -1.25 (left)

    Not sure if being + or - the recommended +1.25 cyl is pass or fail.
