  • Can a 100 percent Disabled Veteran Work and Earn an Income?

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.

    • Type 1 Diabetes recent onset!
      I was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes in September 2017 OUT OF NOWHERE.

      i am a Navy Reservist and deployed in later 2009 to mid 2010 and again later 2014 to mid 2015; had a 2 year recall between those deployments.  

      Only healthcare received since commissioning in 2008 was from the Navy and no issues EVER.

      insulin dependent and have dietary restrictions and in a non deployable status.

      VA denied initial claim due to Type 1 not showing on active duty and now appealing.

      Anyone with successful experience getting a rating with my circumstances?  I live in Upstate New York.

    • Agent Orange Kadena Afb Okinawa
      I am looking for anyone who was on Kadena AFB, Okinawa or .Chanute AFB, IL. My dad was there from Oct. 68-April 70. He has ichemic heart disease, diabetes which has resulted in the amputation of his right leg below the knee and peripheral neuropathy. We were denied in 2002 AMVETS filed a claim on his behalf for heart condition, diabetes and back problems. I refiled in December 2011 and have just received the claim statements and medical release forms. I am familiar with filling out this paper work because my husband is a combat veteran of Iraqi Freedom. I have been reading articles from the Japan times and I am a member of the Agent Orange Okinawa facebook page. Another thing that helps make my dad's case is that he was on Chanute AFB, IL and it is on the EPA Superfund list and has PCBs/Pesticides and Dioxins/Furans listed as ground and water contaminants. I welcome any advice, tips or articles that I may have missed in my own research.

    • Appeal granted and closed.
      My appeal was granted and closed on November 9.  I got an unofficial notification from the DAV on November 15 stating "appeal granted with an evaluation of 30%" which is great!  My question is this:  How long until I get the official notification from the va? Nothing on ebennies has updated since the appeal closed. Appeal is now in historical and just says complete and at originating va office. I understand no one knows va timelines to a tee but a general timeline would be great.  Thank you all! Hope you have a Merry Christmas!


      Edit:  This was my first time appealing and it was a VBA grant.
