About this Service


Appointments for readiness/routine eye exams are available for active duty members only, but retired members may order one pair of glasses per year when presenting to clinic with a valid spectacle prescription.  Single-vision and bifocal lenses are available; progressive lenses (“no-line bifocals”) and transitions lenses (which become tinted in sunlight) are not available.  Contact lenses fittings are available to members on the Mission Essential Contact Lens Program as designated in writing by their Commanding Officer; these are typically Navy Divers and periscope operators for whom glare or fogging issues with glasses may affect job performance.
