Vision and Safety Eyewear Guide for U.S. Army Civilian and Military Job Series Technical Guide 006
Purpose This technical guide (TG) provides recommended visual performance standards for work in U.S. Army civilian and military jobs. In addition, the TG recommends eye protection for those job series that involve work in eye hazardous areas or tasks. These vision standards promote visual efficiency and safety and should not be used as accession or retention standards. Background This TG is intended for use by occupational health, safety, industrial hygiene and vision care providers on U.S. Army installations worldwide to determine the following for an individual employee or group of employees: • Visual performance standards that will give the employee the visual capability to perform efficiently and safely in the workplace. • Eye protection requirements where there is a potential for eye injury while performing duties in the workplace. The local Vision Conservation and Readiness Team (VCRT) members should review work conditions to determine if the TG recommendations match the actual work being performed by the employee(s). The final determination of vision standards or vision protection is vested in the local VCRT. Where two standards (for example, Standard 6 and video display terminal (VDT)) both apply to the job, use the more stringent requirement. The VDT standard applies to workers using a VDT 20 or more hours per week. Table 1 of this TG contains the vision standards used in Department of the Army Pamphlet (DA PAM) 40-506, The Army Vision Conservation and Readiness Program. For a more detailed description of the VCRT and a description of occupational vision, vision safety, and environmental vision, refer to DA PAM 40-506.

TG 006 Why have vision standards been established?

November 2002

During World War II, Joseph Tiffin, an industrial psychologist, and his colleagues from Purdue University performed a large-scale investigation of the relationship between visual performance and on-the-job productivity of specific employees. He described the existence of a pattern of visual skills (rather than a single skill) that seemed to be possessed by individuals who performed well at tasks. From the extensive vision screening and work efficiency study, Tiffin’s group formulated vision requirements for six job classifications. These classifications and standards have stood the test of time without modification. The only change made to the original standards for the Army in DA PAM 40-506 has been the addition of a standard for VDT workers and night vision device (NVD) users. Table 1 provides the vision standards used in DA PAM 40-506.

Vision Standards Description: 1 - Clerical and administrative occupations requiring a considerable amount of desk work (also see VDT). 2 - Occupations involving operation of moving vehicles (examples: driving trucks and automobiles, piloting aircraft*, operating cranes, forklifts, and tractors). 3 - Jobs involving inspection for surface defects and fine tolerance. 4 - Jobs involving machines in which the operating parts are within arm’s reach. 5 - Skilled trades requiring good near and distant vision (example: plumbers, millwrights, aircraft mechanics*, electricians*, and supervisors). 6 - Jobs of relatively unskilled type (example: porters, warehousemen, laborers). VDT - Jobs requiring at least 20 hours of work per week at a video display terminal (VDT). (VDT work is not an eye hazard.) NVD - Jobs requiring NVD (Night Vision Devices) use are tested to best correctable visual acuity without the NVD. Color - Special requirements exist for those who must possess excellent color discrimination (examples: electricians, pilots, aircraft mechanics, electronics repairers). * Some jobs require more stringent acuities based on regulation (e.g., pilots require 20/20).

TG 006 What is meant by safety eyewear?

November 2002

Industrial Eye Protection: Industrial eye protection for civil service and contract personnel will meet the requirements of the American National Standards Institute Standard Z87.1, Practice for Occupational and Educational Eye and Face Protection (ANSI Z87.1). Military personnel should use Z87.1 or military mission-specific devices such as Ballistic Laser Protective System (BLPS), Spectacle Protective Eyewear Cylindrical System (SPECS), or Military Eye Protection System (MEPS) when available. See DA PAM 40-506 for details on the types of eye hazards and eye protection. Biological Protection: Biological protection may be met by wearing ANSI Z87.1 glasses with sideshields, goggles meeting ANSI Z87.1, or standard eyeglasses with a splash barrier attached. Sports Protection: Some sports such as racquet sports and paintball have standards established by the American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM). These standards were established for the specific sport addressed by the standard. Where no standard exists, the recommendations of the national sponsoring organizations of the sport are adopted. ANSI Z87.1 eyewear is not approved protection in any sport. See DA PAM 40-506 for more information on specific ASTM standards. Note: The vision standards for Army Officer, Warrant Officer, and Enlisted personnel are based on job descriptions in DA PAM 611-21. The protective requirements are based on the Military Occupational Specialty (MOS) description. Where duties of the service member are significantly different from the MOS description, the local VCRT may specify a different degree of protection. Upon deployment, SPECS, and BLPS (and MEPS when fielded) are considered the appropriate protection for soldiers. In some instances (for example, fuel or chemical handlers), industrial protection meeting ANSI Z87.1 chemical splash requirements may also be appropriate in place of or in addition to BLPS/SPECS. Determining final protective requirements rests with the local VCRT members per DA PAM 40-506. The vision standards and protective requirements for General Service (GS) and Wage Grade (WG) employees are based on job descriptions in the Federal Personnel Manuals. Technical Assistance Requests for technical assistance may be directed to the Tri-Service Vision Conservation and Readiness Program of the U.S. Army Center for Health Promotion and Preventive Medicine (USACHPPM) at DSN 584-2714 or Commercial (410) 4362714.

November 2002 APPENDIX B: AVIATION RELATED VISION REQUIREMENTS – MILITARY AVIATORS

The information below is an extract from AR 40-501 Standards of Medical Fitness (30 September 2002). As regulations change or recruiting needs are accommodated, some requirements may change or be temporarily modified (such as unaided visual acuity and refractive status). Make sure you are using the most recent version of the AR when evaluating flight personnel. Note that this extraction addresses only the vision requirements and not any pathological conditions that may preclude induction or retention in aviation. Pathological conditions/medical history exclusions are found in paragraph 4-11 of AR 40-501. 4–12. Vision The causes of medical unfitness for flying duty Classes 1/1A/2/2F/2S/3 are the following: a. Class 1/1A. (1) Distant visual acuity. Uncorrected distant visual acuity greater than 20/50 in each eye. If the distant visual acuity is 20/50 or better in either eye, each eye must be correctable to 20/20 with no more than 1 error per line on the Armed Forces Vision Tester (AFVT) or projected Snellen chart at 20 feet. (2) Near visual acuity. Uncorrected near visual acuity greater than 20/20 in each eye; with no more than 1 error per line on the AFVT or Snellen near visual acuity card.

APPENDIX C: AVIATION RELATED VISION REQUIREMENTS-CIVIL SERVICE This information was extracted from the United States Office of Personnel Management (OPM) Operating Manual (from the OPM web site): http://www.opm.gov/qualifications GS Series 2181: Aircraft Operation At the time of initial appointment, candidates for all pilot positions must possess a current first or second-class medical certificate in accordance with FAA regulations; both meet the intent of the requirement. If an agency decides, for example, not to accept the second-class medical certificate, the rationale for the decision should be based upon the requirements of the position and should be thoroughly described in agency operating material. Staff specialists not involved in the operation of aircraft need only have a medical examination indicating that they are able to perform the duties of the position to be filled. For flight test pilots, airspace system inspection pilots, and U.S. Customs pilots, all candidates must possess a current first-class medical certificate at the time of appointment. GS Series 2152 - Air Traffic Controller Initial Employment Applicants for initial employment to air traffic control specialist positions must meet the following requirements. (Unless otherwise indicated, these requirements are identical for all specializations.) Eye 1. Visual Acuity a. Terminal and Center Positions--Applicants must demonstrate distant and near vision of 20/20 or better (Snellen or equivalent) in each eye separately. If glasses or contact lenses are required, refractive error that exceeds plus or minus 5.50 diopters of spherical equivalent or plus or minus 3.00 diopters of cylinder is disqualifying. The use of orthokeratology or radial keratotomy methods is not acceptable for purposes of meeting this requirement. The use of contact lenses for the correction of near vision only or the use of bifocal contact lenses for the correction of near vision is unacceptable. b. Flight Service Station Positions--Applicants must demonstrate distant and near vision of 20/20 or better (Snellen or equivalent) in at least one eye. If glasses or contact lenses are required, a refractive error in at least one eye that exceeds plus or minus 8.00 diopters of spherical equivalent will necessitate an ophthalmological consultation to establish absence of ocular pathology that could interfere with visual function. The use of contact lenses for the correction of near vision only or the use of bifocal contact lenses for the correction of near vision is unacceptable. C- 1

Equivalents in Near Visual Acuity Notations Standard Test Chart: 14/14 Snellen Metric: 0.50M ; Jaeger: J-1; Metric: 6/6 2. Color Vision--For all specializations, applicants must demonstrate normal color vision. 3. Visual Fields a. Terminal and Center Positions--Applicants must demonstrate a normal central visual field, i.e, the field within 30 degrees of the fixation point, in each eye. They must also demonstrate a normal peripheral visual field, i.e., the field of vision beyond the central field that extends 140 degrees in the horizontal meridian and 100 degrees in the vertical meridian, in each eye. b. Flight Service Station Positions--Applicants must demonstrate a normal central field of vision, i.e., the field within 30 degrees of the fixation point, in at least one eye. 4. Intraocular Pressure--For all specializations, if tonometry reveals either intraocular pressure greater than 20 mm of mercury, or a difference of 5 mm or more of mercury intraocular pressure between the two eyes, ophthalmological consultation is required to rule out the presence of glaucoma. If a diagnosis of glaucoma is made, or if any medication is routinely required for control of intraocular tension, the applicant is disqualified. 5. Phorias a. Terminal and Center Positions--If an applicant demonstrates greater than 11/2 prism diopters of hyperphoria or greater than 10 prism diopters of esophoria or exophoria, evaluation by a qualified eye specialist is required. If this evaluation determines that bifoveal fixation and vergence-phoria relationships sufficient to prevent disruption of fusion under normal working conditions are not present, the applicant is disqualified. b. Flight Service Station Positions--Applicants must demonstrate the absence of diplopia in the cardinal fields of gaze. NOTE: Eye pathology and/or chronic eye disease may affect hiring or retention. The details are not included in this appendix. 6. Ocular Motility--For terminal and center specialist positions, applicants must demonstrate full extraocular motility. 7. History of Eye Surgery--For all specializations, a history of ocular surgery requires ophthalmological consultation. If consultation indicates that the condition that necessitated surgery could interfere with the visual function necessary for performance as an air traffic control specialist, the applicant is disqualified. A history of radial keratotomy is disqualifying.

TG 006 RETENTION STANDARDS

November 2002

To be medically qualified for retention, an air traffic control specialist must meet the following requirements. (Unless otherwise indicated, these requirements are identical for all specializations.) Retention requirements for vision and eye conditions are identical to the requirements for initial hire. GS Series 1825 - Aviation Safety Aviation Safety Investigator Applicants must be physically able to perform efficiently the duties of the Aviation Safety Inspector position. They must: Have good distant vision in each eye and be able to read without strain printed materials the size of typewritten characters (glasses and contact lenses permitted); In addition, applicants for positions that require participation in the operation of aircraft must: 1. Possess a valid first-class medical certificate in accordance with FAA regulations; and 2. Pass recurrent medical examinations as prescribed by the FAA. Vision Requirements for Flight Physicals (as of 22 May 2002) CLASS 1 Flight Physical Eye standards for a first-class airman medical certificate are: (a) Distant visual acuity of 20/20 or better in each eye separately, with or without corrective lenses. If corrective lenses (spectacles or contact lenses) are necessary for 20/20 vision, the person may be eligible only on the condition that corrective lenses are worn while exercising the privileges of an airman certificate. (b) Near vision of 20/40 or better, Snellen equivalent, at 16 inches in each eye separately, with or without corrective lenses. If age 50 or older, near vision of 20/40 or better, Snellen equivalent, at both 16 inches and 32 inches in each eye separately, with or without corrective lenses. (c) Ability to perceive those colors necessary for the safe performance of airman duties. (d) Normal fields of vision. (e) No acute or chronic pathological condition of either eye or adnexa that interferes with the proper function of an eye, that may reasonably be expected to progress to that degree, or that may reasonably be expected to be aggravated by flying. C- 3

TG 006

November 2002

(f) Bifoveal fixation and vergence/phoria relationship sufficient to prevent a break in fusion under conditions that may reasonably be expected to occur in performing airman duties. Tests for the factors named in this paragraph are not required except for persons found to have more than 1 prism diopter of hyperphoria, 6 prism diopters of esophoria, or 6 prism diopters of exophoria. If any of these values are exceeded, the Federal Air Surgeon may require the person to be examined by a qualified eye specialist to determine if there is bifoveal fixation and an adequate vergence/phoria relationship. However, if otherwise eligible, the person is issued a medical certificate pending the results of the examination. CLASS 2 Flight Physical Eye standards for a second-class airman medical certificate are: (a) Distant visual acuity of 20/20 or better in each eye separately, with or without corrective lenses. If corrective lenses (spectacles or contact lenses) are necessary for 20/20 vision, the person may be eligible only on the condition that corrective lenses are worn while exercising the privileges of an airman certificate. (b) Near vision of 20/40 or better, Snellen equivalent, at 16 inches in each eye separately, with or without corrective lenses. If age 50 or older, near vision of 20/40 or better, Snellen equivalent, at both 16 inches and 32 inches in each eye separately, with or without corrective lenses. (c) Ability to perceive those colors necessary for the safe performance of airman duties. (d) Normal fields of vision. (e) No acute or chronic pathological condition of either eye or adnexa that interferes with the proper function of an eye, that may reasonably be expected to progress to that degree, or that may reasonably be expected to be aggravated by flying. (f) Bifoveal fixation and vergence/phoria relationship sufficient to prevent a break in fusion under conditions that may reasonably be expected to occur in performing airman duties. Tests for the factors named in this paragraph are not required except for persons found to have more than 1 prism diopter of hyperphoria, 6 prism diopters of esophoria, or 6 prism diopters of exophoria. If any of these values are exceeded, the Federal Air Surgeon may require the person to be examined by a qualified eye specialist to determine if there is bifoveal fixation and an adequate vergence/phoria relationship. However, if otherwise eligible, the person is issued a medical certificate pending the results of the examination. CLASS 3 Flight Physical Eye standards for a third-class airman medical certificate are: (a) Distant visual acuity of 20/40 or better in each eye separately, with or without corrective lenses. If corrective lenses (spectacles or contact lenses) are necessary for 20/40 vision, the person may be eligible only on the condition that corrective lenses are worn while exercising the privileges of an airman certificate.
