    The standards are a little bit different to the 2001 version as the VA2 entry standard has been amended to reflect the VA2 "in service" standard. (My apologies for being a pedant, Lamri.)

    In bite size chunks- Aircrew need to be VA1, Warfare trades VA2, most others VA3.

    The newer standards are as follows:

    Current Visual Acuity Standards

    Standard I (VA1)
    Visual acuity to be achieved without correcting lenses Right 6/12N5, Left 6/12N5

    Visual acuity to be achieved with correcting lenses Right 6/6N5, Left 6/6N5

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


    Standard 2 (VA2)

    Visual acuity to be achieved without correcting lenses Right 6/60, Left <6/60.

    Visual acuity to be achieved with correcting lenses Right 6/6N5, Left 6/9N5

    Refraction limit
    Spectacle correction (in any meridian)
    +6.00 sphere sphere or cyl


    Standard 3 (VA3)

    Visual acuity to be achieved without correcting lenses Right 6/60, Left <6/60

    Visual acuity to be achieved with correcting lenses EITHER Right 6/6N5, Left 6/24N10 OR Right 6/9N5, Left 6/18N10 OR Right 6/12N5, 6/12N10.

    Refraction limit
    Spectacle correction (in any meridian)
    +/- 6.00 sphere or cyl

    Below VA3, unacceptable for Naval service.
