    Hello Sir,

    For Indian Force, your eye sight is acceptable till 6/9 correctable with glasses.
    Technical Officers and Ground Duty Officers require this qualification.
    However, also you can get a laser operation done. After which you are given a 1 yr Temporary rejection.
    After 1 yr, if your eye sight is 6/6, you are even allowed to fly transport and helicopters.

    Best Of Luck

    No Dear friend one who have bad vision is not acceptable by

    indian air force for all the dept even for technical

    but there is one solution if you went under laser surgery

    and after that if govt. Hospital give certificate to you about

    your eye with the thought that "your you is now fine and there

    is no problem to apply in any defence force" then you are eligibile to

    apply in indian air force.

    Best of luck

    Hi friend,

    Physical criteria is an important part of the eligibility criteria for technical part of IAF.

    with an eyesight problem you can not apply for this.

    So, i suggest you to consult with a doctor for treatment as soon as possible.

    The eyesight shuld be 6/6.

    with this defect if you go for the interview they can reject you.

    So, first go for treatment of your eye.

    Regards
