Hi all,

I am short-sighted and wondering if it will affect my being eligible for the RM? I have previously passed a Army eyesight test if that helps.

Thanks in advance.

If your only short-sighted, I dont think that will stop?
You'll get your eye test after your interview, before your medi.
How far through selection are you?

Hi Andy,

Welcome to the site. If you passed the eyesight test for the Army infantry 7 it hasn't deteriorated significantly since, then you should be OK for Royal Marine as the eyesight standards are the same.

You get an free eye sight test at an independent optician (usually Dollond & Aitchison) anyway as part of your medical.

Thanks for the replies.

I was medically deffered when I applied for the Army so I've got a while before reapplying. Decided to use the time to get my fitness up so I can join RM and wanted to make sure there were no obvious things that could keep me from joining.
