Yes, you're going to hell.



Why would you cheat? What do you gain from it?

Presuming you didn't do it to qualify for a CDL or a High Performance jet license......

No worries, at least as long as you can see well enough to drive

If it was a DMV eye exam, you'll kill us all. If it was an eye exam at your optometrist, you're just going to end up with sub-par glasses/contacts. And you'll kill us all.

Survey says: Bad person.

What is done is done. You seem to be having pangs of conscience and that is good to see in this day and age!

If you cheated because you wouldn't let them blow that gale force wind into your eye....then you are forgiven.

As a teacher once told me, "You're only cheating yourself." (But she didn't wink at me.)

Perhaps the requirement is because you may come in contact with acids, which could be extremely dangerous if you had to remove contacts before flushing your eyes?

Or, perhaps because people with contacts are more likely to develop corneal ulcers?

Could be a variety of reasons, or could just be nonsense.

If you are going to be aiming a gun at me, no.

If you are going to be aiming a gun at x136, yes.

That depends. Do you cheat on other things, like taxes for instance?

Are you sure you didn't just feel like you were cheating while getting the rectal exam?
