    I just have a simple, quick question that can hopefully be answered promptly. I processed and almost cleared meps two weeks ago. I passed everything except for my eyes. I have an astigmatism that is a bit too strong. I got a consult scheduled it, went to it and apparently I still need a waiver. I signed it about a week ago and my recruiter sent it in and now we are playing the waiting game. My question is, what is a typical wait time for waivers at this time? I understand every waiver is on a case by case basis but what's an average wait time? I saw a post from 3/4 years ago where it took almost a year to get approved but then I was also seeing a post from about one year ago saying waivers are turning around quickly.

    Everything about me is good to go, for whoever might ask. I got an 80 on my afqt, I have no police interactions whatsoever, no drug use, one tattoo that is within standards, no dependents, and no financial issues.

    There is one person that reviews all the waivers. It could take a month, it could take 6 months. There is no carved in stone answer as to the amount of time for a waiver. This is a game of hurry up and wait. Hopefully you'll hear sooner rather than later but be prepared if it is later. Good luck.

    Hello My Friends,

    I'm a new guy here and I see a lot of talk about astigmatism everywhere being a disqualifier. Does anyone know if they average the astigmatism or if they take into account if one eye is over the limit then a waiver is required?

    For example: Say I have a 2.0 Astigmatism in my left eye and 3.25 in the right eye. Would this cause me to need a waiver? Or since the average is better than the limit of 3.00 than I will not need a waiver.

    Hopefully this wasn't already addressed previously.

    Thank you for your time.

    OK Madmark, calm down. Ask once, ask in one place and wait a response. All you're doing is causing people to repeat themselves. Answers have been given, don't find 8 more places to ask the same thing.
