Seafarers Eyesight Testing

In April 2015, Hong Kong optometrists were officially invited to provide Eyesight Test Certificate for operators of pleasure vessels and local vessels (coxswain). Our optometrists are eligible to issue the eyesight test certificate for both pleasure vessels operators and Coxswain.

There is a eyesight requirement from Marine Department of Hong Kong for the pleasure vessels operators, which includes distant, intermediate & near visual acuities and color vision function. For Coxswain, diplopia (double vision), visual fields and night blindness assessments are required in addition.
