hi guy, so I'm i the process of joining the navy and I was just wondering if I would be eligible with my current eyesight and if my .ate would be too.

My prescription is -6.00 right eye and -6.00 left eye. I have a distance acuity of 6/7.5 and a near acutiy of N4.

My mate has a prescription of -6.00 right and and -6.50 in his left eye. With a distance acuity of 6/6 and a near acuity of n4.

Thanks in advance for any help.

Not sure if you've found your answers yet but worth checking this document.

The second document provides the standards 1-3, sp as long as your corrected refraction is 6/6, 6/9 or 6/12 and does not exceed +-6.00D (sph + cyl in any merdian) then you're fine.

Hope this helps

So would having a 6/7.5 be okay or not then

Go to your nearest AFCO and get the official criteria from them.

This is an UNOFFICIAL navy forum.

Which AFCO are you going through, is it London?

This one is a tricky one, so see what the CAs have to say.
Nope plymouth, I have asked but they just say they don't know and even if they did their not allowed to tell me .

Waiting for capita to phone me after receiving my medical info etc. Already done interview and stuff.
I think that the best thing to do will be to wait until your eyesight test - that will confirm your eligibility in terms of your vision. It should be fairly soon, I would have thought.
