Do we require perfect vision to work as a medical officer in the army?
Please somebody answer because it will mean a lot to me. I really want to serve in the military but im ******* blind as a bat. Okay not that blind because im over exaggerating. But have high power
Everyone must meet the same initial entry standards. Including vision.
More than +/- 8.00 diopter does not meet the standard and would require a waiver. If you cannot correct to 20/20, no waiver will be granted.
You will be a soldier first and and a medical officer second.
So look at the requirements for entering the Army.
You'll have to ask a recruiter.
My dad was legally blind and he was an officer. That was 1951 though.
Which country? The US military requires all personnel to pass a standard vision test, with and without glasses. Perfect vision is not required without glasses. Near perfect vision is required when corrected with glasses.
