You can wear corrective lens for the eye exam they do not ask you to remove them. I also believe they test for color blindness and depth perception. I dont believe they are looking to fail anyone on the medial unless there is some serious issue that would prevent you from doing this job.
Hopefully on Thursday we will find out for certain when the 1st class in Sept will begin.

When i took my eye exam i failed... I asked if i could go get some glasses at the mall and come back the next day and they said yes.... I took the eye exam over and passed ... Also correct color vision is not needed for the job but they do test for it.. Good luck.

Default Depth perception test

Online Depth Perception Test

With my left eye closed I was unable to see the finger to the left of the circle which means one eye is dominant.

Let me try to translate what he said.

"They are looking for bulging discs, hair line fractures. Got me on the last one though, hope that helps."

You cannot see bulging or herniated discs on an xray. What they are looking for are fractures....severe arthritis....birth defects such as spinal bifida....any plates/rods/screws or evidence of previous surgery
