    I was born with a weird condition where my brain doesn't fully pick up the image from my left eye, I had surgery on it so my left eye doesn't become a lazy eye and it is 20/60, however I can see perfectly normal if not better than some because my right eye is 20/15. Even though I see through 20/15, would I be DQ?

    I can't speak to your condition, but eyesight needs to be correctable to 20/20.

    Best of luck!

    Is that for both eyes or just overall? Thanks

    It's not just vision (2-13) but also your actual eyes (2-12) that the army cares about. Read the appropriate paragraphs and realize that you may be a DQ, you may be able to get a waiver, but you definitely won't get in if you don't try anyway.
