What is my vision acuity? 20/?

- 6.50 left eye - -5.50 right eye, what is my uncorrected acuity?

These are requirements for a certain job in the military, do i fit in here? 20/100 both eyes corrected to 20/20, or 20/200 worse eye-20/70 better eye, corrected to 20/20 both eyes.

Your uncorrected acuity is the vision distance without your glasses or contact lenses on.  You are a moderately-high myope, and so your distance vision without the glasses is probably worse than 20/200. However, if your eyes are healthy with no disease, then your corrected vision with the glasses should be 20/20 in each eye.
