***BACKGROUND*** Junior year my right eye was hit with a tennis ball (thrown) and required laser photocoagulation surgery to repair a "subclinical detachment" of the retina. The recovery was smooth and complete. I was disqualified by DoDMERB a month ago after sending in my remedial information pertaining to the above incident and resulting treatment. The code was D153.20-Detachment of the retina or retinal surgery-"Current or history of detachment of the retina, history of surgery for same or peripheral retinal injury, defect, or degeneration that may cause retinal detachment" I was considered for a waiver by USMA, but today my father got a call from the regional commander explaining that the USMA doctor(s) had turned down my waiver request. He was also told that my file was otherwise among the top 600 of this year's candidates', making this news even more dissapointing. My questions are: Is there anything else I can do with regards to West Point? If no, should I inform my representative and senators' SA contacts to "cancel" my nomination? Also, I did not apply for a 4 year ROTC scholarship. Would my disqualification/waiver process share a similar fate through USAAC if I were to pursue a 3 year scholarship or simply participate non-scholarship? Would I still be able to become an Army doctor in the future? Your responses are greatly appreciated and will help me decide whether or not to start focusing on other career choices.
