What To Do With This Letter



  I am going to post a letter that my VA Optometrist wrote for me.  This doctor performed a C&P for me regarding my eyesight caused by TBI.  Basically, the doctor says that the results of the C&P exam are in error, because my vision was not corrected by glasses.

  So my question is what do with this letter?  Do I file another claim?  Do I file an appeal?  Do I ask for a "redo" on my C&P?


  I will post the letter below.


I have been working with Mr Mays since initially examining him at his Compensation and Pension exam Oct 6, 2016.  Since that exam we have been focusing on getting his eyes to work better.  At the initial C&P exam, I was unable to obtain a comprehensive picture regarding the diplopia as I have no with numerous visits focused on this.  It has been discovered that the initial diagnosis of the diplopia being correctable by spectacle correction was incorrect.  At this time, and with countless trials with glasses and prisms no optical means have been able to correct the patients diplopia.

I'm not sure I understand the question?

you can't appeal until your denied.

If this is for a claim that has not been adjudicated just yet  with approval or a denial , then I would ask for another C&P  Remember you can disagree and appeal a decision if its approved or denied.

What did the Examiner mention about your eye sight from the military?

this has to be caused from your military service  to established  Service Connection.

But as I Mention Maybe I'm not Fully Understanding your Question.

other members can chimme in .....

Okemos, How long have your eyes been that way?  Have they done mris and a spinal tap?  My daughter had that and hers were crossed and had double vision for about six months.  We end up finding out she has ms.  She had a horse kick her in the head yrs ago.  Don't know if that what caused it or not.  Hope you can get it straightened out for you.  Make them keep checking and if they can not, see if they can send you to a private specialist.  My daughter ended up getting hers back,  but  her private doc sent her to a pediatrician eye dr.

    • I filed for my mitral valve regurgitation heart disease secondary to a service-connected condition on 7-30-18. It was granted on 8-30-18. Since I filed for this heart valve issue and was awarded, can I still file for hypertension ? I have been seeing comments that you should file for hypertension first and file for heart disease as a secondary. Can I file for hypertension as a secondary to my heart disease ? I am alittle confused on this matter.

    • I am a 100% disabled veteran, At first I was super excited to find out I am getting retro pay for back benefits to 2006. But that was over 2 months ago. I been waiting and waiting and calling to ask them wheres my back pay. They first told me "one month" than I call again. The guy started reading a script of basically "we are malingering on paying you" type crap. I was wondering if there is any number I can call besides that 800-827-1000 number to inquire about my status. I don't know why its taken so long when there is specific information telling them from the judge that VA owes. 

      There was a remanded to see if I was eligible for IU (I get it now since 2014 im actually 90% with 10 of that been IU). I been on SS since 2004. Can Someone help me out? Thank you

    • You might have a 38 CFR 3.156 situation-

      meaning the VA might have considered your claim in 95/96 as "not well grounded" and failed to even get your STRs.Or they did get your STRs but never considered the specific entry you cited here.

      Lots of discussion under a search, of 38 CFR. 3.156 (a)(b) (c) ---here is a winner:
