I also have bad eyesight, but i got VA3, which i was very lucky to pass, just scraped it infact.

Your saying that your right eye is -12, that looks a bit concerning as you look at the VA3 standard.

you need to get VA3 to be a steward, as it logistics

Standard 3 (VA3)

Visual acuity to be achieved without correcting lenses Right 6/60, Left <6/60

Visual acuity to be achieved with correcting lenses EITHER Right 6/6N5, Left 6/24N10 OR Right 6/9N5, Left 6/18N10 OR Right 6/12N5, 6/12N10.

Refraction limit
Spectacle correction (in any meridian)
+/- 6.00 sphere or cyl

Below VA3, unacceptable for Naval service.


As it says the limit for both eyes is -6, are you sure you are -12, if it is then unfortunatly i dont think you will achieve the VA3 standard, but am no optician at the end of the day

Look at what i have highlighted

I just got back and I just about got VA2.
it was a normal eye test really sophi21, if U have bad eyesight you will do the normal stuff you would do on any of your past eye tests. the only diffrence to a normal eye test for me was I had to do a colourblind test.
its easy really just go in and do what you can! good luck!
