    Hello.

    You are using contact lens .. then there's not any problem.. But go through the criteria by the way.

    Eye Vision criteria:


    High Grade Colour Vision.

    Binocular Vision.

    Refractive Error Permitted-

    Total Amount of Hypermetropia(including cylinder) shall not exceed plus 4.00D

    Total Amount of Myopia(including cylinder) shall not exceed minus 4.00D. However, if its a non-pathological case of myopia, it can be relaxed.

    Spectacles allowed but no mention of lasik. Therefore, lasik (Laser-Assisted in situ Keratomileusis, commonly referred to as laser eye surgery) is not allowed.

    (Mr. Karthic IAS who cleared for IPS about 2yrs back had a myopia of -14 and another gentleman who got selected last year had a myopia of -7)

    So, you don't worry.. just focus on your preparation.

    All the Best.
