Please mention if any Eye testing is also required.My friend has applied for UAE visa and has approved as well.But he has a damaged ratina of one eye.

please tell if he still be eligble to wrk theer and will allow to stay there.

Is there any other medical test conducted apart from Blood and Xray?

For residency, they are mostly interested in communicable diseases - so no eye test is required so far as I am aware.

However, an eye test would be needed for a driving licence.
