Blindness/Visual Impairment/options to improve eyesight

Advertisement


Question
For a new job, I need at least 6/60 or 20/200 vision without contacts or glasses. I am a 21 year old female, I have no idea if my eyesight is steady as the last prescription I got was 6 years ago. What are my options? I don't know if it matters or not but the job involves spending long hours outside and being in sea water.

Answer
DEAR TASH

Thank you for your query
TO know if your vision is within limits to be oualified for your job you need to go to an eye specialist anyways you havent checked your vision since so many year so it is mandatory that you get your eyes checked properly and also you will be outside and in sea water and that is going to cause lot of eye strain and salt water going in your eyes so its always better to get pre check up done


please revert back to me if you have any additional query
