My son is applying to USNA and had to take a remedial Farnsworth Lantern test of his color vision at the AFA clinic. Basically he failed all the combinations except the Red/Green and the passed the Red green simple test. So apparently he has a color vision deficiency, but not color blindness. In your experience will the academy grant a waiver for this condition? He has indicated he is interested in major in mechanical engineering and the submarine service. Will the academy consider these in a waiver decision or suggest other areas of the Navy he may qualify for? Is there anything else we can or need to do? I am concerned we will wait until March for an answer he won't like and has no control over. in the meantime he has already been accepted at another excellent engineering school and he is waiting to accept and be considered for scholarships because he really wants to attend and serve at the USNA. thanks for your advice.
