Hello, I am an applicant and on 10/28 I received a couple of DQ codes. With a month passing without either word from USAFA and FIle being complete without nomination yet with MOC Interview this weekend I was considering if these conditions to be waivered by USAFA. Thank you.

D227.20Scoliosis/kyphosis
D155.80Astigmatism in excess of 3.00 diopters
D154.10Current nystagmus other than physiologic "end-point nystagmus"
D231.80Speech impairment
D154.20Strabismus - exotropia

That’s a lot of stuff going on.

1. Did the DODMERB or the waiver authority ask your for any AMI? Maybe x-rays so the Cobb angle could be quantified?

2. What’s your eye glasses prescription? Are you correctable to 20/20? What’s your distant and near vision uncorrected?

3. Nystagmus - it’s possible the astigmatism, if really bad, can be causing this. I’m assuming the eye doctor saw this? Problem is being tired and stressed can make nystagmus worse. Any idea from your own doctors the cause? Did you have as an infant?

4. Speech impairment - explain this a bit. Hopefully, you had as a child and all is good now.

5. Strabismus exotropia - one of your eye goes outward. Is this easily noticed by people? Or is the degree so small that no one notices the deviation? Problem with this is double vision.

1. Yes they did but that was before the DQ letter came out.

2. Dont know exact precription but my eye sight is 20/25 corrected and 20/50 or so uncorrected

3. Shouldve told background but this has been since birth and have had mhch improvement over years causing the vison problems about but after 2 surgies and countless optomitrist vist its in decent condition.

4. Yes. As a child till HS when was tookeb off of needing a thetapost for most part i am excellebt and understandable

5. It is noticeable when im focising on somthing but double vison not a issue. Relates vack to ngystmaus too.

Also note, i know i cant be a pilot with these so sadly thats not my goal.
