    DS is HS senior. He has applied for NROTC scholarship. We feel reasonably confident he will win one, but maybe not to his first choice school, out of state high dollar public.

    Two weeks ago he was hit in the eye with a soccer ball at school. (Once a week, his weight training class plays some sort of high cardio game.) We took him to MD within an hour. The doc saw some damage, but nothing requiring immediate treatment.

    Went in for follow-up this AM. Eyesight is 20/15 in both eyes. However, Doc says there is some retina detachment, requiring monthly check-ups, zero contact sports(no ice hockey or lax in spring), and surgery at an appropriate time (10-12 months hence). Doc also said surgery will permanently repair damage.

    Is he done?

    You need to just go through the process. It is always a case by case because medically it is case by case regarding a diagnosis.

    Get your paperwork in order is all anyone can truly give as guidance.

    Sorry if this leaves you with no true answer. It is just the best anyone can do until the exam occurs.
