Eyesight requirements - mine warefare specialist

Shades

Newbie
Hi I am wondering what the eyesight requirements are for a Mine Warefare Specialist as I do wear glasses but am afraid I’m not going to get in because of that reason since my eyesight is decent but not the best.

I've applied for this role, and Capita sent me an email saying my doctor as advised them that I don't meet the visual standards for the role(yet I'm just 0.1 something away from having perfect eyes) opticians explained this to me.
I called capita and within 6 hours I got an email saying it was a mistake basically and I am fit to proceed "but I need to have a pair of glasses before my start date" but they've said I don't need to wear them, just have to have them.
Pathetic right ? Yeah.
But there must be an explanation to this, Maybe it's just a worse comes to worse scenario that they want me to have them, for all I know they could say this to everyone.
So basically I think aslong as you have crisp vision with glasses they should let you in ?
Not sure.
Once you send your opticians forms they should be able to let you know.
Hope this somewhat helps or guides.
