    I have long hoped to enter the navy through rotc or the academy, but i found out that i was color blind which would disqualify me. Recently I came across a company that has developed lenses that are able to correct color blindness enough that extremely colorblind people could pass the pip test 100% of the time. I was wondering if it would be at all allowed to use theses to pass the color vision requirements for the navy?

    color vision

    Tiny Tim,

    There are waivers given at USNA for color vision. My son received one last year. Please see what I posted a week ago under the post "My son took his remedial FALANT test today". It can be done if you want it bad enough. You only need ONE.
