...having just returned from my AC medical and been told I should never have got to this stage as my eyesight falls short of the requirement. I am VA2 which was clearly written on my optician's report but the required standard is VA1. Not exactly amused that the last 9 months have been spent waiting in vain for something that is now not going to happen; ie me becoming an AC. As I was not the only one this happened to today (the other guy was from a different AFCO) I think the careers offices may need to check what they have written down for eyesight standards as there appears to be a nasty discrepancy with what the medical staff has for the standards. Now for the 2nd time in under a year I need to reconsider my options and think whether I really do want to join a navy which doesn't seem to want me OK rant over!
