Keratoconus Rating


DVLDOG

Question

I was recently diagnosed with Keratoconus I looked in to any VA claims or connections to Gulf War service but just got confused.  I was wandering if anyone has had orknow anyone who has dealt with this and the VA and if I should bother filing a claim or am I just wasting my time.  Any help would be greatly appreciated

I believe the VA will rate you on  your corrected vision only?

As for as getting it SC...You need a nexus from a qualified Dr stating its least likey as not cause from your prior military service.

others hopefully will chime in.

If your not sure on filing a claim for it  I would suggest  do it anyway....if denied  then take the reason they denied and get it corrected

Thanks, I went for lasik and Dr told me I didn't qualify because of it and then told me it may be due to the environmental condition during the gulf a combination of the sand and chemicals and of course the eye rubbing

Hi did you have any luck? I have filed every which way and just got denied again with a higher level review. My last option for now is the board and I'm going to get a lawyer. Just wanted to know the jist of your situation and how it's going?

  • How to get your questions answered...

    question-001.jpeg

    All VA Claims questions should be posted on our forums. Read the forums without registering, to post you must register it’s free. Register for a free account.

    Tips on posting on the forums.

    1. Post a clear title like ‘Need help preparing PTSD claim’ or “VA med center won’t schedule my surgery” instead of ‘I have a question’.
    2. Knowledgable people who don’t have time to read all posts may skip yours if your need isn’t clear in the title. I don’t read all posts every login and will gravitate towards those I have more info on.
    3. Use paragraphs instead of one huge, rambling introduction or story. Again – You want to make it easy for others to help. If your question is buried in a monster paragraph there are fewer who will investigate to dig it out.

    Leading to:

    Post clear questions and then give background info on them.

    Examples:

    • A. I was previously denied for apnea – Should I refile a claim?
      • was diagnosed with apnea in service and received a CPAP machine but claim was denied in 2008. Should I refile?
    • B. I may have PTSD- how can I be sure?
      • I was involved in traumatic incident on base in 1974 and have had nightmares ever since, but I did not go to mental health while enlisted. How can I get help?

    This gives members a starting point to ask clarifying questions like “Can you post the Reasons for Denial from your claim?” etc.

    Note:

    Your firsts posts on the board may be delayed before they show up, as they are reviewed, this process does not take long and the review requirement will be removed usually by the 6th post, though we reserve the right to keep anyone on moderator preview.

    This process allows us to remove spam and other junk posts before they hit the board. We want to keep the focus on VA Claims and this helps us do that.
