    my eye doctor did the book depth perception test and while I think I nailed the number and circle part of it when he asked "what do you see on this page" with a fly with wings hovering above it i stupidly said "a fly" he didn't ask about the wings, so i didn't say anything about them so now I'm...

    I have "mild" red/green color blindness; How does this limit my options for ROTC?

    I am interested in doing ROTC, but I am concerned about my "mild" red-green color blindness. My diagnosis of "mild" red-green color blindess came from an online test, not an official examination. My first choice would be Navy, but I am willing to do ROTC for any branch of the military. I have...

    Vision exam waiver

    I recently received a denial on my vision waiver but did pass the rest of the medical exam. My vision is extremely poor but correctable to 20/20 in both eyes. Do I have any further recourse at all? This is for a full ROTC scholarship.

    Hi, If I do not get ‘pilot qualified’ after DoDMERB vision testing, will I be unable to graduate as a pilot? Or can I get PRK at the academy (and how do they decide who gets PRK)? Thank you!

    Applicant pending Disqualification for D153.00

The letter states my file will be reviewed by the medical WA, but from the posts I have reviewed it looks difficult to receive a waiver from the WA. This is for a Type 1 Scholarship. Is there anything I can do or someone I...

    Stuck in DODMERB remedial

    So I’m in AFROTC and got a remedial because I put that I was told I had double vision when I first got contacts or so I thought. When I went to my optometrist they said they had no record of me having it and I also don’t believe I do. I went back and forth with dodmerb because they kept saying...
