Your height is perfect as per the eligibility criteria(157cm) for paratrooper commandos. But your eye site should be 6/6 without glasses. Also you must not have any eye problem like colour blindness. As you have -3.5D myopia, so you are not eligible for paratroopers commandos.
The selection process for paratrooper commandos is : First of all you have to crack the entrance test. After that you have to clear the interview. At last you must have to qualify the medical fitness.
