    So here is the deal...
    I fail the Ishihara test every time (number plate)
    And I pass the Farnsworth D-15 test everytime...

    I recently read something about the Farnsworth Lantern test being an option?
    I have never actually taken that, but I read that the D-15 test is derived from this...

    My question is, what color vision tests are administered?
    This makes a huge difference as to what ROTC program I can apply to,
    especially being that the NROTC - MC option is the only one that accepts color blind ppl and I found out that being that I am missing two fingers, the MC is gonna be the toughest thing for me to get into...

    After failing the Ishahara eye test at DoDMERB, you should be offered a 'remedial" Farnsworth Lantern test by DoDMERB for the NROTC and USNA application. I don't know what the USCGA or USMMA accept as my DS did not apply to them.

    I also know that the USMA, AROTC and NROTC-MC option all allow red green color blind people with out a waiver, at least they did last year.
