I have my second eye test for the RN on Monday after failing the first one. I was told to bring both my contact lenses and my glasses, but forgot to bring my contacts to the eye test. My doctor said it's alright to proceed with just my glasses on, so we went ahead with it. I was told I didn't meet any of the VA3 standards and that I did not pass it. I asked my AFCO what are my options, and he informed me I could go for the eye test a second time - but I know it's pretty much useless as I have really poor vision without my contacts or glasses. Anyhow, I've booked it. It says "visual acuity to be achieved for VA3 without correcting lenses: 6/60" - exactly how strong is this? Is good, unaided vision needed in every role? I'm going for CIS, by the way. In the notes, my optician put "distance unaided right eye and left eye: N5 <6/120 (for both)" - I'm guessing this is way below the minimum requirement? I just feel extremely disheartened, discouraged and 'empty' having passed the psychometric exam and the interview and knowing my RN career could be over before it's begun because I couldn't pass an eye test. Here's my specific results if anybody wants to take a look, maybe tell me how far off I was. http://oi66.tinypic.com/ic6b69.jpg Many thanks.
