    I'm a current freshman who is an USAFA hopeful. I've been doing some research during the past few days, and I came across some information regarding Corneal Refractive Therapy (Orthokeratology) and how it can DQ you. I was wondering if this is true, and if so, what the specifics regarding it are. Should I continue using Orthokeratology, or should I stop? My vision is around 150 for my left eye and 100 for my right, and Orthokeratology is not the only way for my vision to be corrected. I've been using these corrective contact lenses for three years now. I understand that this is a definite DQ for a pilot position, but I'm just interested in getting accepted to the Academy.

    Your responses are appreciated. Thanks.
