Recently I had to get a remedial for my eye exam because I failed some of the tests. When I got my remedial done, my eyesight was 20/20-1 but for the military that equates to 20/25 not correctable to 20/20. I was wondering if it's even possible to get an offer of appointment with 20/25 vision when it isn't correctable to 20/20.
It possible. They might request a waiver for this.
I recently read through some of the DoDMERB disqualifiers and it states that any of the following are disqualifiers: "5. VISION a. Current distant visual acuity of any degree that does not correct with spectacle lenses to at least one of the following (367): (1) 20/40 in one eye and 20/70 in the other eye (369.75). (2) 20/30 in one eye and 20/100 in the other eye (369.75). (3) 20/20 in one eye and 20/400 in the other eye (369.73). b. Current near visual acuity of any degree that does not correct to 20/40 in the better eye (367.1-367.32). c. Current refractive error (hyperopia (367.0), myopia (367.1), astigmatism (367.2x)), in excess of -8.00 or +8.00 diopters spherical equivalent or astigmatism in excess of 3.00 diopters. d. Any condition requiring contact lenses for adequate correction of vision, such as corneal scars and opacities (370.0x) and irregular astigmatism (367.22). e. Color vision (368.5x) requirements shall be set by the individual Services." Basically, you're fine and will likely not need a waiver unless you have a different problem.
