-How much do glasses lower your health profile?
-Can you join more sophisticated units, for example the paratroopers with glasses (and is it realistic for a mahalnik to serve as a paratrooper at all)?
I´m asking because besides my ametropia I have no medical issues whatsoever, no flat feet or diabetes or so.
Chaim, you have asked us a question akin to "how long is a rope?". Without your glasses, do you walk into walls? Are you legally blind? You have given us no criteria to judge. Ametropia is a serious vision problem as you are aware. I have to ask you if you could stand in a desert in 110 degree weather, harsh sunlight in your face and be depended upon to defend the life of the soldiers around you?
As to what a Mahalnik can and can't do, everything is up to you. Mahal can be a starting point, or a destination unto itself. The best rule of thumb to go by is what is called in the business world "Return on Investment". If you are going to serve for a total of 14 and a half months, including training, will the army send you to a nine month training course, for example? The answer is obvious.
