    I recently took my DODMerb and i'm just wondering to see if I should be okay.

    I do have correctable 20/20 vision (I wear glasses) and I checked off yes for "X-Ray" (Invisalign for teeth)

    I'm sure I'll be okay but I just want to hear your insights.

    May have a remedial regarding x-ray. DS had 2 x-rays (pneumonia & shin splints) but only had to provide follow up info and was fine.

    So a remedial would just be providing additional info?

    Yup. I believe for DS since it was more than dental X-ray he needed doctor letters saying unrestricted physical activity. I would think routine dental x-rays though will not require any follow up. You will probably have forms regarding Invisalign though.

    Your fine for the x-ray piece.

    There's actually 2 main parts on the vision piece. One is visual acuity. Looks like you're fine because you're correctable to 20/20. What is your refraction? People can be correctable to 20/20 but not meet the refractive standards. Your eye glasses prescription is basically your refraction.
