Abstract : The purpose of the report is to investigate the reasons why a significant number of the 1964 enlisted candidates for submarine duty were disqualified for ocular reasons at the time of their final physical examination administered upon reporting for submarine training. Visual drops for 1964 totalled 279. This number does not include 41 candidates who met the other visual criteria but failed the color vision test. A large percentage of these disqualifying visual deficiencies should have been discovered at the preliminary examination performed at the previous duty station. (Author)
