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. Hi this is my first post, I'm hoping to join the Royal Marines this time next year, I have been training for around a year now and my fitness is fine but I'm worried about my eyesight.

    I recently purchased contact lenses and my eyes are both -1.50, the optician says this is not bad and I only really need to wear them when I am driving.

    Anyway, I have been using the search engine and all the eyesight topics are like 6/6 6/9 etc, I don't know what these are so can someone convert mine for me and see if my eyesight is suitable for the Marines?

    Thanks Rob
  2. For some peace of mind mate, why don't you take a bimble into your local AFCO and ask one of the members of the recruiting staff. The Doc might even be there if you're lucky and he/she can put your mind at rest.
    From memory, it is only a standard eyesight test and I think you'll be fine.
  3. i agree to do what lamri said and i wish you good luck in the future.
  4. Thanks for that, if that guy is -2.25 and in S2 then I'm good for the Marines, that's a load of my mind. I will still get down to my local AFCO to get it cheacked out.

    Thanks again, Rob :D
