    There is no need for you to understand them; let the Optician assess your eyesight and take it from there.

    How wonderfully condescending.

    The publication at the link is incorrect (as at June 2009) because the Visual Acuity standards have changed a couple of times over the last six years and there is a greater degree of latitude.

    The only way to find out, with any degree of accuracy, is to ask for an Optician Report Form from your AFCO & ask a professional optician to grade your current eyesight standard.

    With regard interpreting your prescription, whilst it may sound condescending, even opticians sometimes grade RN Visual Acuity standards incorrectly, so it's best not relying on random amateur opinions. (mine included).

  8. I failed v2 by two marks she said and my eyes are terrible. Blind as a bat without them in. You will be fine

    It's never a failure. It's always a lesson
  9. I find my sight is pretty iffy without my eyes in as well.

  14. This is very true, happened to me earlier this year. Luckily the Doc at the medical noticed the mistake and changed it for me.
