I have been submitting information to West Point about my medical issue, I have astigmatism in excess of 3.00 diopters. I have had to send in corneal topographies and a belin ambrosio enhanced ectasia display. I just got news that I was my waiver was denied and was utterly heartbroken. Currently based on the opinion of 3 optometrists I have mild with the rule astigmatism and am correctable to 20/20. I am physically and academically qualified. I do a lot in and outside of school and eyesight has never been a problem. I would even be willing to pay for PRK out of pocket to receive an appointment, but have been told this is disqualifying. I have a nomination and now everything seems to have been a waste. Is there anyway I can appeal this evaluation of my eyes and still receive an appointment to the class of 2022?
