    DEAR FRIEND,

    your eye sight is terrible with this eyesight you can never go in flying branch
    every test conducted during the procedure have points like for teeths 14 points are minimum and
    22 points for perfect 32 teeths.
    so you are having a very bad eyesight but you are eligible for airforce as you are not blind only for technical field or ground duty officer
    .you will be asked for the laser surgery for better eye sight
    so contact to your surgeon for improvement
    for more info log on tohttp://www.cerierairforce.nic.com
    ...........................wishing you all my best to your dream................................

    to join in air force the eye sight required is 6/6. And 6/9 for bad eye which is correctable to 6/6.
    You must not be colorblind,
    your myopia must be nil..
    Astigmatism must not exceed to +0.75

    Hello friend,

    Eye vision tests are one kind of tests which screens out candidates because the defense forces always requires perfect candidates since they are subjected to many rough conditions where the personal has to prove his ability.But there are certain relaxations allowed by different forces for personals in technical branch etc.Below i have mentioned basic criteria's for eyesight.

    *Distant eye vision must be 6/6 or 6/36
    *6/9 is for spectacles corrected vision
    *Myopia limit ranges from -3.5D TO -0.75D respectively
    *Color blind limit is CP-3
    *Binocular vision must be level 3.
    *You must be able to recognize difference between green and red color.

    Hello Mister,

    I am afraid to say, but there is no scheme of Technical Entry in Indian Air Force.

    10+2 TES entry is for Indian Army.

    However, if you want to join Technical branch of IAF through AFCAT or other exam, then eye sight permissible is 6/9
    But it should be correctable with glasses.

    Have a fine day
