    Hi, i am currently a sophomore looking to apply to West Point and perhaps a few other military schools in the future. However my vision is around the 5.75 mark uncorrected. Corrected, it ranges around .5 . First off, i was wondering if i would even be considered for having such bad vision.

    Second, i use a special type of contacts (paragon crt) that you only wear in the night, and take out for the day. During the day, i can see fine (40/20) or so. But if i don't wear them in the night, my vision deteriorates significantly. If my night contacts are not allowed by military schools such as West Point, I suppose i can obtain day contacts, or glasses (i could probably achieve 20/20 vision with these). Therefore, i was wondering if such night contacts would be allowed? or glasses, or day contacts?

    Third, could someone please explain how frequently these eye waivers are given out? and how i would go about obtaining one?
    Thanks
