    Hello,
    After the DODMERB physical, I discovered that my one eye is sharper than 20/20, but the other is 20/25. Will I need to get a waiver since I have below 20/20 vision in the one eye?
    Also, if I were lucky enough to pursue a career in naval aviation, would I be disqualified because of my 20/25 weak left eye?

    Thank You,
    Joshua

    I believe for Naval Aviation you must be 20/40 correctable to 20/20 to be qualified for pilot. Also remember PRK is an option if your eyesight got worse and you are qualified for the surgery.

    Check out the link below as it addresses some of the eye sight stuff for USNA. I think you will be fine as long as you are correctable to 20/20.
