What are the limits on visual acuity and refraction for admission of candidates in military schools?
Army Cadet School (Corps)
Air Force Academy (Engineering)
Noncommissioned Officers Infantry School
Noncommissioned Officers Air Force School (Engineering)
Noncommissioned Officers Air Force School (Administration)
Officers Army School (Corps)
Nursing Officers School
Visual acuity should be 10/10 on each eye (with or without correction), and if there are refractive errors, they must not exceed 6 dioptres on a spherical equivalent (taking into consideration the existing astigmatism by 2).
Naval Academy (Combatant)
Visual acuity should be 10/10 on each eye without correction.
Naval Academy (Engineers)
Noncommissioned Naval Officers
Visual acuity should be 1/10 on each eye, and 10/10 with correction. In case of myopia, it must not exceed 2.5 dioptres, if applicable, hyperopia should not exceed 3 dioptres, and for astigmatism the limit is 2 dioptres. All candidates on Naval Academies must not have undergone radial keratotomy refractive surgery.
Air Force Academy (Pilots)
Visual acuity for near and far sight must be uncorrected, at 10/10 on each eye. Myopia must not exceed 0.25 dioptres, hyperopia must not be greater than 1.75 dioptres, and astigmatism must be at 0.75 dioptres for each meridian (measured via cycloplegia). Also, esotropia must be up to 10 dioptres, exotropia at 5 dioptres, hyperopia up to 1 dioptre, and near point convergence must not be greater than 70 cm. Please note that any refractive surgery is forbidden (it is checked via corneal topography).
Army Cadet School (Weapons)
Greek Police Academy (Officers and Constables)
Visual acuity should be 10/10 (with or without correction) on each eye, and refractive errors must not exceed 4,5 spherical dioptres (spherical equivalent). Astigmatism must not exceed 5 dioptres.
