My daughter was offered a 4 year AFROTC scholarship. Her DoDMERB status is currently Pending Waiver Submission/Review. Her disqualification code is D155.70 Myopia - refractive error greater than -8.0 diopters. She called to get her test results; one eye was -7.75 and the other was -7.75 with a cylinder power of -.75. This should make her spherical equivalent in that eye just over -8.1. The person she spoke with at the DoDMERB number given in the letter said that the numbers from both eyes are added together so her numbers would need to be around -3 in both eyes in order to qualify. I'm not sure, but unless the Air Force has a different formula for qualification, this does not sound right to me. Is this accurate? Do we need to submit anything that might be helpful to get this waived? Should we take her in for another exam? The letter states that any additional medical information we submit now will be forwarded for the waiver authority's review. Since her numbers are so close, is it likely that it will be waived? I know that it is anyone's guess, but it seems that if waivers are granted for this, it would be more likely if her numbers are close. I am curious about other persons experience with the same issue. She has been accepted to the University Nursing Program and would therefore be a Nurse in the Air Force. We spoke with the detachment at the U and they said that they wont have access to anything until she starts to in process with them. Please, we are just looking for anything anyone can tell us about their experiences. Thank you.
