Failed eye test - what to do next?

Hi all!

I had just had my triage call today and the nurse went through everything and said everything's fine, until she told me that she couldn't let me proceed with my application because I have failed my eye test. I have done an eye test for my application for the same role (logistics officer for RN) in 2017 and I was allowed to go ahead then. So I assume that I have marginally failed the test. I was told that I could appeal to decision but I am just wondering if there are any other ways I can go around this obstacle given that this is all I really wanted to do for my career.

Thank you in advance!

Quite often someone who represents the country in other countries, but there are other sorts I understand.

I'm no expert but if you've failed your eyesight test the only way forward would be to take it again and then, if you pass, go for the appeal procedure.

I am actually not sure on what grounds I failed it as I have just got the triage call on Friday evening and was only told that I failed the eye test at the end of the call. I have yet to receive an email about it. So I m not sure exactly what I failed it in. So I guess what I do need to do is an eye test somewhere else and appeal with that?

It could be anything then you should ask what you have failed, you should get another test from 2 different opticians and send them off

Why two?

If someone fails the eyetest, it's because they do not meet the visual acuity standard (corrected & uncorrected parameters).

For the OP, believe it or not, I've known people fail to meet the eyesight standard because they were borderline and simply because they were dehydrated. Most people who fail to meet the eyesight standard are already aware, prior to triage.

An independent eyetest at your own expense , using a blank duplicate optician report form from your AFCO is your best course of action in order to submit an appeal.

Good luck.
