Eyesight Criteria for IAS Recruitment

The eyesight criteria for IAS (Indian Administrative Service) recruitment in India may vary slightly from year to year and could be subject to change. It is always advisable to refer to the official notification or website for the most up-to-date information.

  1. Visual Acuity: The minimum acceptable visual acuity for distant vision is 6/6 or 20/20 in the better eye and 6/9 or 20/30 in the worse eye. Candidates should not have color blindness or night blindness.
  2. Refractive Errors: Refractive errors, such as myopia (nearsightedness), hyperopia (farsightedness), or astigmatism, should not exceed the following limits:
    • Myopia (including cylinder): -4.00 D (including cylinder)
    • Hypermetropia (including cylinder): +4.00 D (including cylinder)
    • Manifest astigmatism: ±2.00 D
    • Anisometropia: ±2.00 D
  3. Color Blindness: Candidates should not suffer from congenital color blindness. They should be able to distinguish and recognize colors properly.
  4. Binocular Vision: Candidates should have binocular vision and good stereoscopic vision (depth perception). The absence of binocular vision, a squint, or any other morbid condition of the eyes or lids that is likely to interfere with the normal binocular vision or cause double vision may lead to disqualification.

It is important to note that these criteria are provided as a general guideline and could be subject to change. The detailed and official notification or guidelines issued by the Union Public Service Commission (UPSC) should be referred to for the most accurate and up-to-date information regarding the eyesight criteria for IAS recruitment.

Why LASIK for IAS Recruitment?

Eyemantra, a renowned eye care center, is a preferred choice for LASIK surgery for IAS recruitment due to its expertise and reputation.
