  2. sir i have eye lense with power -2.5 D , am i eligible for rrb ssc.In rrb notification it is mentioned that eye specs lense power should not exceed 2 D.does this meant that they are restricting only candidates with positive(+) power higher than 2 D .

    • Hello nitish,

      2 D means plus and minus both. But you have eye lens with power -2.5 D. So most probably you will face some problems during medical examination.

      Feel free to ask if you need any help in future & join us @ Google+ / Facebook for getting regular updates.
