Seafarer's eyesight test

"SEAFARERS EYESIGHT TESTING" : eyesight test certificate:pleasure vessel operator / local vessel (coxswain)


At our center, we offer vision testing for seafarers and provide certificates for passing the eyesight test. This is necessary for obtaining or renewing a seafarer's license, as per regulations set by the Marine Department. The test includes checks for distant, intermediate, and near-distance vision acuity, as well as color vision. If you wear glasses while on a boat, please bring them for testing.

The "Eye Test Certificate" is valid for two years and can only be signed by a registered optometrist (Part I or Part II) or a registered medical practitioner. Our optometrists evaluate the vision of pleasure vessel operators based on the "Eyesight Test Certificate - Pleasure Vessel Operator" standards issued by the Marine Department. For local vessel (coxswain) operators, the seafarer will be tested and evaluated according to the vision standards set by the Marine Department in the "Eyesight Test Certificate - Local Vessel (Coxswain)."
