Hello,

I am a current high school senior who was recently awarded a 3-year Advanced Designee Army ROTC scholarship, and I had a quick question regarding the eyesight portion of the DoDMERB. My prescription is -11/-13 diopters, which I know is outside of the limit of +/- 8 d. I have pretty thick glasses, but I can see 20/20 with glasses and contacts, and I have never had any infections or other issues with my eyes.

1) I was wondering if y'all know how hard it would be to get a waiver for my vision.
2) What does the vision portion of the DoDMERB look like? Do they test anything other than visual acuity with prescription lenses?

Thanks!

Hit “Questions about the process.” Read paragraphs, 11,13, 15-19, 22. Your questions are addressed therein.
It is a comprehensive eye exam by an Optometrist, not a technician.
