    My son is a competitive candidate but received news today from DoDMerb that he is unqualified due to a vision astigmatism over 3 diopters. His vision is correctable to20/20. Is it generally routine to get a waiver for this?

    The CG medical waiver authority is the one to decide if a waiver is needed, approved or disapproved. Provided your applicant is academically competitive they will automatically be considered for a waiver if necessary
