Eyesight Criteria for UPSC Recruitment

The eyesight criteria for UPSC (Union Public Service Commission) recruitment, which is the central recruiting agency for various government positions in India, generally follow similar standards as other government services. The specific criteria may vary depending on the position, but here is a general overview:

  1. Visual Acuity:
    • Uncorrected (without glasses/contact lenses): 6/6 in the better eye and 6/12 in the worse eye.
    • Corrected (with glasses/contact lenses): 6/6 in each eye.
  2. Refractive Errors:
  3. Color Blindness: Candidates should not have color blindness. Color perception is usually tested using Ishihara charts or other methods.
  4. Binocular Vision: Good binocular vision and depth perception are typically required.
  5. Squint: Candidates should not have a squint or any significant visual anomalies.

It’s important to note that these criteria can vary based on the specific requirements of each position. It is advisable to refer to the official UPSC recruitment notifications or consult with the respective recruitment authority for the most accurate and up-to-date information regarding eyesight criteria.

Why LASIK for UPSC Recruitment?

LASIK (Laser-Assisted In Situ Keratomileusis) can be considered for UPSC recruitment as it offers the potential to correct refractive errors and improve visual acuity, meeting the required eyesight criteria. LASIK surgery reduces or eliminates the need for glasses or contact lenses, enhancing the candidate’s convenience and visual performance during examinations and training.

Eyemantra, a renowned eye care center, is a preferred choice for LASIK surgery for UPSC recruitment due to its expertise and track record. Eyemantra offers advanced LASIK technology, experienced surgeons, and a strong reputation for successful procedures. Choosing Eyemantra ensures candidates receive specialized care and achieve optimal outcomes, enhancing their chances of meeting the strict eyesight standards set by UPSC.
