    Hi,

    Yes , join Indian Army with an eyesight of -1.5 and 1.25 in right and left eye

    There are various entry schemes through which Indian Army will recruit

    combined defence service examination and so on.
    For all these entry schemes the physical standard required is quite similar
    such as minimum acceptable height 157.6 cm etc.

    Max acceptable eye standards for Defence forces are:-

    Air Force- -0.75 without myopia for both eyes
    Navy - -0.75 for both eyes
    Army - -2.5 for both eyes



    The eye sight requirement for the post of officer in Indian army
    is mentioned below:

    > Uncorrected without glass 6/12

    > Corrected with glass 6/6

    > Limits of Myopia 3.5

    Yes, you can join, the eligiblility criteria is different for each post you apply. So if you are an engineer then eligibilty must be quite different than if you are applying for a soldier.

    hi

    if one have eyesight,then it can be corrected(if it is in minimum level)..in some cases there are certain rules which to be followed(mandatory)

    the candidates who are having eye sight problem can use spectacles or use contact lenses with correct marking..

    but it should be equal to the vision sight without glasses i.e 6/6

    -total amount of myopia should not be more than minus 4 D and hyper metropia should not be more than plus 4 D.

    -should not have color blindness

    -should not have night blindness

    -should be free from eye infection

    -should free from astigmatism

    good luck

    thank you

    Hi friend,

    I think it may be a problem for you because eye sight criteria is a criteria is an important part of the eligibility criteria to join defence.

    Eye sight
    6/6

    If you have any problem in your eye, then try to consult with a doctor before apply for this.

    Regards
