Primary and Specialty Eye Care
The Optometry clinic is a gateway clinic that provides primary comprehensive eye examinations addressing refractive error, acute and chronic ocular health conditions and the treatment and management of ocular disease. If secondary ophthalmologic care or surgical intervention is necessary, appropriate referrals are generated for ophthalmology or other subspecialty clinics. Eyeglasses are provided to active duty and retired active duty members. A written eyeglasses prescription will be provided for procurement of civilian frames as desired.
Typical patients that may benefit from optometric care: require non-surgical management of chronic eye disease such as diabetes and glaucoma; patients with acute eye and vision issues; patients who have failed vision screenings; and/or have need for vision correction.

To assist with social distancing, the Department of Defense has temporarily expanded the “G-Eyes” spectacle ordering system to all Active Duty personnel. This program allows you to self-order Frame of Choice, standard issue glasses, protective mask inserts, and EYEPRO inserts.
Re-order glasses or inserts
that you have previously ordered through the Military Healthcare System.
Check the status of your order.
