    I have already been appointed to West Point and was wondering if an additional medical exam is given upon arrival to the academy and if you fail on something you passed on the DODmerb could you be sent home?

    Yes. The USNA thread talks about staying healthy for the exam you receive before starting Plebe Summer. I assume West Point has something similar.

    Is an eye test performed as well? I passed my eye exam without a waiver, but it was close to being disqualifying without a waiver, since my eyesight is 20/20 left eye 20/40 right eye barely correctable, since it's a connection problem rather than an eye problem.
