Failed recruitment eye test


Hi all. Hope you can help or offer advice. My son has passed his interview for marine engineer and had his medical triage call today to be told his eye sight in his right eye was 6/120 amd he had failed. He is obviously a bit taken aback by this as although he wears glasses he did not think it would be an issue. He is booked in at another opticians tomorrow for a second opinion. He has also emailed his AFCO but I have tried to do soem research but does anyone know how far off his eyesight is to getting in. Also i presume he could have eye surgery but i would imagine that would delay his recruitment until it had settled down. Thanks in advance. Any advice appreciated.

There is no one on the site qualified to give advice on this, the only real advice must come from his AFCO. Good luck to him.
