    I have recently been granted a waiver for mild allergies by the USNA. I was disqualified for my allergies, but this was my only disqualification. I was suprised! I was for sure I would also be disqualified for my eye sight. Was there any reason I did not receive a disqualifcation for my sight? Thanks.

    The vision requirements for USNA changed earlier in 2010. It used to be +/- 6 and now it is +/- 8, the same as for USAFA and USMA.

    See this thread, and note Mr. Mullen's comment in post #5.

    "Effective 28 Apr 2010, that is no longer correct. This new standard is "Current refractive error (hyperopia (367.0), myopia (367.1), astigmatism (367.2x)), in excess of -8.00 or +8.00 diopters spherical equivalent or astigmatism in excess of 3.00 diopters {does NOT meet standards}"


    If you want specifics about your individual status contact Mr. Mullen directly by email and he can give you more answers.
