    Hello

    You can join Air Force though you have having spectacles. With normal problem in eyes also you will be eligible for many post in Indian Air Force.But there are some limitation. Your eye vision should be within limit which is decided by Air Force authority.

    For most of the job it is given that in eye there should not be myopia or hyper-myopia more than +4.5 or -4.5. in some case it may be +4 or -4.
    so your spectacles power should be in this limit. also you should not have any color blindness.

    According to eligibility every candidates must having vision is 20/20 with corrective lenses.So, As long as your distance vision is correctable to 20/20 and your near vision is correctable to 20/40 with your glasses you can become pilot.

    Hello friend,

    As to my knowledge person with MYOPIA is not allowed as a flying officer,but he can join the technical branch or the ground duty branch respectively

    Basic criteria is eyesight vision should be 6/6 or 6/36 without spectacle or 6/9 with corrected spectacles,myopia limit is -3.5 D and should not have any color blindness.

    HOPE THIS WAS USEFUL

    REGARDS

    Dear aspirant,

    It is very good that you are keen to join defence services but I am sorry to say but you are not eligible for Air force to become a pilot because of your eyesight.

    It is very strictly written in the rules and regulations of the defence services that the eyesight of the candidate must be 6/6.

    But you can improve your eyesight by undergoing a laser operation in order to join Air Force and to become a Pilot..


    -ALL THE BEST.
