    You’ve just been rated 100% disabled by the Veterans Affairs. After the excitement of finally having the rating you deserve wears off, you start asking questions. One of the first questions that you might ask is this: It’s a legitimate question – rare is the Veteran that finds themselves sitting on the couch eating bon-bons … Continue reading

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.

    • Choosing a VA Disability Attorney Means Learning What Questions to Ask
      Choosing a VA Disability Attorney Means Learning What Questions to Ask. Chris Attig - Veterans Law Blog 

      <br style="color:#000000; text-align:start">How to Hire an Attorney For Your VA Claim or Appeal Free Guidebook available on the Veterans Law Blog

      I got an email the other day from a Veteran.  It had 2 or 3 sentences about his claim, and then closed at the end: “Please call me. So-and-so told me you were the best and I want your help.”

      While I appreciate the compliments, I shudder a little at emails like this.  For 2 reasons.

      First, I get a lot of emails like this.  And while I diligently represent my clients – I often tell them we will pursue their claim until we have no more appeals or until we win – I am most assuredly not the best.

      There are a LOT of damn good VA Disability attorneys out there.  (Most, if not all, of the best are members of the National Organization of Veterans Advocates…read about one of them, here)

      Second, I don’t want Veterans to choose their attorney based on who their friend thought was the best.  I want Veterans to choose the VA Disability attorney who is BEST for their case.

      In some situations, that may be the Attig Law Firm.

      But it may also be be Hill and Ponton, or Chisholm-Kilpatrick, or Bergman Moore.  Or any one of the dozens of other attorneys who have made the representation of Veterans their professional life’s work.

      There are hundreds of attorneys that are out there representing Veterans, and I’m here to tell you that who is best for your friend’s case may not be the best for your case.

      How do you Find the Best VA Disability Attorney for your Claim?

      First, you have to answer the question: do you NEED an attorney?

      Some of you don’t...
