Go to a local recruitment centre and speak to someone about it. You might be able to join still. At least you will know then. Also speak to an optician and see what they can do.

If you feel your eyesight is bad, I think the first thing you should do is book an eye test with your optician. If you find out your eyesight is poor, or you need to wear glasses/contact lenses, you will then be able to discuss this with your army recruitment agency. You may still be able to join the army if your vision can be corrected with glasses or contacts, but perhaps up to a point.

Whatever happens, your health matters the most. If, for whatever reason, you can't join the army you could talk to the recruitment agency and see if there are similar jobs that you could do, or talk to a careers teacher at school (if you have one) for advice on other careers that you might be interested in.

I know most militaries let you join provided you're aren't worse than +/- 6 dioptres.
Also, consider a LASIK/PRK if you can do that.
Maybe you can't join the infantry (because i dont know bout your country), but most certainly you can join the medical corps, or some other corps

PM me if you ever wanna talk. Send a message my way.
And remember, you matter. You're awesome. You're beautiful. Stay strong, the world will get better.

May The Force be With You.
