    During my son's DODMERB exam the optometrist wrote "Strabismus Non-Paralytic Hypertropia". However, he has excellent vision, depth perception and all other measurements are normal. The hypertropia is only present for short periods when one eye is covered and no measurements were indicated. Questions: 1) is this a disqualifying condition and 2) should I call back to the base to ask the optometrist to clarify his note? Thanks!

    I can't give you the exact answer, but my guess is that it will require a waiver and they'll probably end up requesting further information. If his vision is correctable to 20/20 and he truly does have normal depth perception and the tropia isn't too significant when measured in prism diopters then I can see a waiver being granted.
