Can anyone help me? I am looking to apply as a Warfare Officer but my eyesight is -3.25. Is this standard acceptable and if not, is there any corrective solutions available ie Continuous Wear Month Contact Lenses
The most basic part of the eye test is being able to read the letters illuminated on the white background (you will have done this before if you have glasses). There are a few other rules like max correction and other things I have no idea about.
Just had my pre-joining medical. I am applying for Warfare Officer and have an eyesight of VA2. The doctor that examined me had a table of Officer eyesight levels. There were four subcatigories to Warfare Officer, two needed VA2 and two needed VA1. Does anyone know what sub-specialisations need VA2 and what need VA1. They were abbreviations so I guessed that one VA1 sub-specialisation was Pilot as it was a P. Does anyone know the other 3 and the corresponding eyesight levels.
Tomahawk, have you had your medical results back yet? I spoke to the Navy careers office today and they said VA2 is the requirement for Warfare Officer. I am also in the process of applying but my eyesight is also -3.25 which I am worried about...
I haven't got formal approval to be Warfare Officer. But I had my medical last Thursday and my eyesight was VA2 which is good enough for Warfare (not pilot or observer though) and my eyesight is still -3.25 (well my contact lenses are at least). Hope this helps
