I want to apply for Territorial Army but having doubts about eyesight standards. I have a farsightedness issue with -5.5 power in both eyes but with spectacles, I can see clearly. Can someone please confirm if I am eligible from a physical standards point of view? If not, is it acceptable to take the help of laser operations to correct the eyesight? Looking forward to the answers. Thank you.
