Abstract:

This report reviews vision standards pertaining to entry onto active duty, retention, and mobilization of officer and enlisted personnel in the U.S. Army. It also contains current vision requirements for each enlisted and warrant officer military occupational specialty MOS and commissioned officer specialty skill identifier SSI. Also summarized are special vision standards with application either to all personnel, to a specific sub-group, or a select few. These include, as examples, particular vision requirements for flying duty, marine diving, military drivers licensing, special operations training and assignment, and admission to the U.S. Military Academy, Reserve Officer Training Corps, and Officer Candidate School. All standards are referenced to their appropriate governing published regulation. Confusion within and contradictions to existing regulatory requirements are discussed as appropriate.
