CASA Class 1 Eye Requirements

I got my initial class 1 certificate late last year and was advised by my optometrist that my uncorrected vision was a borderline pass. This has been a cause of great anxiety for me becuase I dont want to lose my job early in my career due to eyesight. What are the eyesight passing requirements for every class 1 renewal? I'm getting a lot of mixed info - some say that I dont need to worry as long as my corrected vision is perfect, but some say I need to have 6/9 uncorrected vision.

(3) A person whose visual acuity in either eye is worse than 6/60 must provide a full ophthalmic report to CASA.
Table 67.150
1.35 Has a distant visual acuity of 6/9 or better in each eye separately and 6/6 or better binocular (with or without correcting lenses)

As per the table, so long as it is correctable.
