I have just received notification that my DODMERB Medical Status is: Remedial Requested due to a Code: R259.10 - It states: "Applicant pending Disqualification for D155.8 - Astigmatism in excess of 3.00 diopters, must complete AMI(s) before waiver processing may be considered" I am asking for some clarification as to how to move forward in my USNA application process. I have read that USNA allows up to a max of 6.oo diopters, whereas all other academies allow up to 8.00 diopters. I am still unsure of my exact diopter number so here are my specific questions: Questions: 1. Should I schedule an appointment with my optometrist and send my results back to DODMERB ASAP? 2. Will the 31 January deadline effect my application process/standing with USNA because DODMERB needs further evaluation? (all other required forms/nominations/CFA/test scores have been submitted and received) 3. What exactly is the permitted diopter number that USNA, specifically, will allow? I have read on other forums that it is 6.00, but I would like clarification as I do not know what specifically mine is. 4. AMI (Additional Medical Information) is required before a waiver is granted, what is the process of attaining a waiver to USNA? And how much time do I have to do so? (because of the 31 January deadline...are the DODMERB qualifications and appointment status dependent on each other?) I will update this as soon as I know more information. Any information or clarification is appreciated. Thank you.
