    Well, if u r having a poor eyesight then u should try to improve your eye sight so that it 'll help u in your selection. and eyesight test are important if you have completed your 12th and applying for INDIAN ARMY ....................
    but if u 've completed ur engineering and want a INDIAN ARMY job so there 'll be a technical round where they can ask u technical question and sometimes resoning and logical questions tooo......... so good luck.......

    Friend,To be eligible to get inducted in Indian Army, it is required that candidate should be physically, mentally and medically fit in all respect. As you said that your eye-sight is weak. As the required eyesight in Army is 6/6 vision without glasses. Moreover, it is required that candidate should not have colour blindness or night blindness. As you have weak eyesight, so you are advised to try to improve your eyesight. It is not difficult to improve eyesight. You have to focus on yoga postures and pranayam, eyesight improving exercises, induction of vitamin A rich food in diet etc. You can take the help of water therapy, naturopathy, accupressure, ayurveda for better result.

    to join indian army physical fitness is very necassary.
    you must have full eyesight.
    but there is some limit of eyesight in some other branches.
    if you have eye sight about +-2.5 then you can join it.
    you can join technical branches, or some other branches like officers
