I was reading the list of DQ's and eyes with a refractive error greater then soemthing like -2.75 is what seems an automatic DQ. My eyes are bad, i believe something like a -4.75 refractive error. I play football and wrestle perfectly ok with contacts, my question is do i have any chance at getting a waiver?

Each academy has their own standards for myopia.

Last year, USAFA was +/-8.00, while USNA and USCGA were +/- 6.00.

You would not have needed a waiver for a -4.75.

Not only each Academy, but each Service. -4.75 would not require a medical waiver for any Service, Academy, and/or ROTC program.:thumb:
