    Naval Recruit Eyesight

    Hi

    I was wondering if anyone can tell me if a naval recruit is considered Admin or any branch other than Admin, the reason why I am asking this is that it says the following about the eyesight requirements on the military.ie website

    Naval Service (Admin):

    Applicants must meet one of the following criteria:

    Unaided vision of not less than 6/6 in one eye 6/9 in the other.
    Unaided vision less than 1) above, but which is not less than either 6/12 in each eye OR 6/6 in the right eye and 6/36 in the left eye.
    Unaided vision of not less than 6/36 in each eye, and can be corrected to not less than 6/6 in one eye and 6/9 in the other.
    Normal colour vision


    Naval Service (Any Branch other than Admin):

    Unaided vision must be not less than 6/6 in one eye 6/9 in the other.
    Night vision must be normal.
    Normal colour vision.

    Hi Guys

    I was able to get the answer from the recruitement section of the DC. Just incase anyone else has been wondering this is what I was told

    The eyesight requirements for recruits are as follows

    Applicants must meet one of the following criteria:

    Unaided vision of not less than 6/6 in one eye 6/9 in the other.
    Unaided vision less than 1) above, but which is not less than either 6/12 in each eye OR 6/6 in the right eye and 6/36 in the left eye.
    Unaided vision of not less than 6/36 in each eye, and can be corrected to not less than 6/6 in one eye and 6/9 in the other.
    Normal colour vision

    It is only after you have done your two years that it will then affect you when deciding what branch of the Navy you want to have a career in.

    The major change in all services but particularly the Navy is that wearing glasses need not prejudice an operational career choice.

    About time. People were going off getting ultimately harmful laser treatment to pass a medical.
