I am searching for some advice on acquiring a hearing waiver. The information this far has been great, so thank you to all for that. I went to MEPS and was DQ'd for hearing in my left ear December of last year. I have never had hearing issues ever in the past. I A few weeks later I went to an audiologist for a full examination and was told my hearing loss is consistent from noise exposure from a paintball hitting my ear when I was 13. Word recognition testing was "excellent". The medical documents were sent to the AFR and was denied a waiver. I will be going to an ENT for further examination with the hopes of trying again. Other than an ENT, is there more I can do?
