    Hello, today i received a medical disqualification for having vision above -8.00 diopters. I believe that this is incorrect as I had an eye exam about 3 to 4 weeks prior to my dodmerb vision exam where my vision was found to be -7.00 diopters with glasses. I was wondering if anyone knows what must be done for me to get a retest, as I did not experience any form of vision drops from that date of my original eye exam, and a 1.00 diopter drop in a month is next to impossible, as I have never dropped even close to that within a single year, let alone one month. Also, on a side note, should this retesting not be possible, is it possible for one to get a waiver with this sort of vision to afrotc?

    I suppose you can call DODMERB and explain your concern, but I'm expecting that your DQ is going to roll into the waiver process. You should have your private Dr. report/ paperwork on hand (keep a copy), and be prepared to respond to a waiver request.
    Be sure your facts are correct. Have seen other posters who were rechecked by their personal Dr for one thing or another and they learned the DODMERB Doc was in fact correct and they had not properly understood the original Dr's diagnosis.
