you have mentioned that your power is -5D and the and according to visual standard of railway recruitment process it should not exceed 4 D. you have not given any idea about your visual acquity and the other required parameters (colour vision, binocular vision,and other) for the recruitment process. u can check out with an ophthalmologist for the same.

Your only solution if your truly want to be a rail worker is to undergo lasik or another form of refractive surgery... which will assure that you will be able to work until retirement. The other tests I cannot comment on and will have to be assessed by you eye doctor.
