Just wondering, if I could ask you guys from your experience, before this gets moved, if it does get moved, to another board.
What are the health checks like when it comes to your eyesight being borderline on the limit for the visual acuity and sight checks?
I just walked in to an optician's today and checked if they had any appointments today, the wait to see if I was too short sighted or not was killing me.
Optician said he'd be realistic with me, my eyesight visual acuity has stabilised, almost hasn't changed since I was 18 two years ago, but it's just over the border he says, landing just about in the unfavourable side of the numbers. Said my vision when corrected with glasses was more than exceptional, interestingly enough to him too. But it's about what you can see without glasses isn't it?
I wrote down what most sites were saying were the stats for eyesight requirements and he understood immediately what I was looking for.
Would I possibly be allowed an exception here? Is the 6/36 statistic very enforced here? I'd be more than devastated if it means immediate rejection. I'll be stuck working in Morrisons' petrol station forever.
Thanks for the help guys, really looking forward to applying later this year for Barrow in Furness specials.
