Abstract : The military services recognize the need to determine the visual demands of military jobs or billets. This need is not being met adequately at the present time. Appealing to vision experts for advice on the setting of visual standards in the military services is useless without information about the purposes for which the standards are needed, the policies of the respective agencies with regard to retirement, retention, and assignment of personnel, and the maximum visual demands placed upon incumbents of specific jobs or families of jobs. It is recommended that a new working group be established to define and evaluate objective methodologies which would be appropriate to the Armed Forces in delineating visual demands in the performance of military jobs.
