Hello Yusril, thank you for asking with HealthReplies.com.
One of the requirements to enlist in the Indonesian Military is a medical check-up or medical test. There are several checks that are usually done and one of them is a sharp examination of eye vision or eye vision.
The results of a sharp examination of vision are generally written as follows 6/6 which means you can see the letters on the examination instrument at a distance of 6 meters which by normal people can be seen at a distance of 6 meters .. VOD 6/30 means showing the results of the examination on the right eye ie you can only read the examination paper at a distance of 6 meters, where by people in general these letters can be seen at a distance of 30 meters. VOS 6/18 shows the results of the examination on your left eye where you can only read the examination paper at a distance of 6 meters which by people at generally these letters can be seen at a distance of 18 meters.
