Dear Friends,

I am going to do my visa medical. I am worried about my eye vision. My one eye has 6/6 vision (full vision) and another has no vision. Is there any eye vision requirement for PR?

Is there any problem for issuing 190 visa? My Occupation is software engineer. please help?

Shouldnt be an issue so long as you can read the eye test board with spectacles or contacts. Would only really be a problem if you were either blind and it would be a hindrance to work or you had some eye disease which meant progressive sight loss and treatment needed.

Thanks shel.

With one eye, I cannot read or cannot see.. But another eye I can. Both Eyes I can read. If they take each eye, one eye is totally blind. worried actually...

4/20 vision means one eye is totally blind?

thanks h3rdan.

no, it's "legally blind". I can see but I can't see to read or anything useful with it if my other eye were to go out

to reiterate, you will be fine..once the vision in your good eye is above a certain level then you will meet the requirement.

the only time you may have issues is if you were fully blind in one eye and partially blind in the other and/or have a condition that may require treatment and/or long term care such as glaucoma, macular degeneration etc

About lattice I dont know. About your RX, its pretty low. Mine is more than double yours and I am still expecting to get through. Our whole family including my 3 yrs old daughter has glasses.

I dont think eye problems should be on the list of criteria for rejection.

Please can anyone tell me which health insurance will support me full cost(doesn't matter if the package is expensive) if I have eye surgery in Australia? My current provider is Bupa and the cost is around 1.1k for 2 years. Thanks in advance

For work visa it should not be a problem as long as it does not interfere with your job

Cheers

Any pre existing disease will not be covered by insurance no matter how expensive
You will have to check each medical policy and decide who covers what and under what circumstances
Don’t expect the members to do the research for you

Cheers
