My DD just checked her file and found out she has been medically disqualified for astigmatism. Her left eye was a -3.75 and right eye was -2.75; however, corrects to 20/20 with contacts or glasses. What are the chances of receiving a waiver? Is there something she should be doing to challenge the DQ?

All I can tell you is that a pre-surgical astigmatism greater than 3.00 diopters is disqualifying. I do not know what your chances are of obtaining a waiver. There is not much you can do unless you think the measurement was in error. If you are competitive for an appointment or you received a ROTC scholarship, your file will be reviewed for a waiver.
