Fleet Air Arm Observer Eyesight requirements

Good evening one and all,

Firstly may I introduce myself.

My name is Nathan, I'm 19 and currently in the process of applying for the RAF/RN and the AAC (even though the SDSR has taken its toll upon our HM Forces :evil:).

As the title denotes, I was hoping that someone may be able to help me in regards to a recent eye examination I undetook.

My results are as follows;

Left eye:
Visual Unaided. - 6/5
Sph. - +0.75
Cyl. - -0.75
Axis. - 180
Visual Acuity. - Corrected - 6/5
N5.

Right eye:
Visual Unaided - 6/18
Sph. - +0.50
Cyl. - -1.50
Axis. - 175
Visual Acuity. - Corrected - 6/7.5 (Hopefully to 6/6)
N5.

I applied to the R.A.F as a Navigator/WSO last year before the cuts began and I was medically fit for that role in regards to eyesight also.

However, I udnerstand that the FAA have different limits and standards.

If anyone could help I would be so very helpful and I thank you for your time in reading this PM.

Kind regards,

Nathan

Interestingly, the RN has tightened the rules on laser surgery.

Those over age 22 must wait 12 months prior to being passed fit (if it's an approved procedure). Those under 22 cannot be passed fit until they are 22 and 12 months post surgery.
