(1) Acuity – At least 20/70 in each eye without correction, correctable to 20/30 in each eye. Successful soft contact lens wearers are not required to meet the uncorrected standard as long as their corrected vision is 20/30 in each eye.
(2) Color perception – Anything other than minor hue impairment is disqualifying.

There may be no greater than a 25 dB loss in the better ear as averaged over the test frequencies of 500, 1000, 2000, and 3000 Hz. There may not be a peak loss at any of the test frequencies greater than:

30 dB at 500 Hz.
30 dB at 1000 Hz.
40 dB at 2000 Hz.
40 dB at 3000 Hz.

There may be no greater than a 35 dB loss in the worst ear as averaged over the test frequencies, and no peak loss greater than 45 dB at any of the test frequencies. In the case of a questionable, unusual, or borderline hearing loss, the applicant’s record may be reviewed by the Occupational Health Program’s Service Consultant for final determination of qualifications.
