    When did you pass? I had my test yeasterday, and failed as I couldn't see 6/60 unaided in my right eye. By doing some research I have found to see 6/60 unaided your prescription can only be -2.50 diopters. Which isn't a strong prescription. I thought when first applying you could be corrected to -6 diopters.
  7. i passed at the beginning of may but when i did i was told my eyesight was actually minus 4.00 in the eyes different to may normal prescription apparently your eyeside can differ each day and i dont think if your eyesight is less then 2.50 you fail as when i was 3.25 i could read down to the third line
  8. Take no notice of the Doc See these and your in ( recruit recruit and retention retention!!!) http://usera.ImageCave.com/scouse/kmc086(1).jpg
