    When I took my eye exam for DODMERB, I apparently did poor enough on the color test that I needed to complete remedial stuff. I took the same test again and got every single one right. I took the test again recently and missed 2 out of 14. How strict is USMMA when it comes to the color vision tests? Do you need to be perfect or will missing 2 be sufficient?

    I know missing one is passing, because I missed one on my sea year physical and it was fine. I'm pretty sure missing 2 is fine as well.

    I know a kid that got dis-enrolled for color vision issues, but I'm pretty sure he missed way more than 2. The sad part was, he somehow passed DoDMERB, prepped at NMMI for a year, and then was dis-enrolled at the academy when they screened him.

    One my classmates from way back (81) made it all the way to 1st Class year and passing license to have an issue with his color perception during the processing of his license. . . .

    Yeah, but it was close for a while.
