    I have recently been professionally recommended for Navy OCS, pending medical review..which included submitting a waiver for my vision. Well, I found out Monday that my waiver was denied due to excessive refraction.

    Left eye: -10.50, right: -8.00.

    The max refraction for obtaining a waiver is -10.00.

    So I submitted the last three eye exam records from my private doctors, hoping that something in them would be enough to overturn the denial.

    I want this so bad, and to be denied because of 0.5 refractive error is hard to accept. My vision hasn't changed since I was 22. (I'm 26.) I realize this is for ROTC and Academy applicants, but I am looking for answers anywhere I can get them.

    I am going to persist and keep at it until I get this waiver approved!

    The direct point of contact was provided you the other day via email. He is the waiver authority for Navy OCS. So your posting is somewhat curious. He will know exactly:thumb:
