Eye Test

#1 Post by Galant » Wed 12 Oct, 2005 10:06 pm

Alright, in about one hour I'll be having an eye test to determine suitability for entry. I wear glasses and though I was borderline Standard I when 16, I've grown worse, I hope not too much worse to make Standard III for the RM.

So, if you pray, pray. If not, then pray any way... or do something else.

Appreciate it, thanks.

Well, the US optician has to look up the conversions for the US-British measurements, but right now it looks like I'll be falling safely inside of Standard II!

Do you know what your prescription is?

I don't have it with me right now, but I believe one eye was at -1.75 and the other not far off that.
