Optometry has Gap in Coverage 

ROUTINE EYE EXAMS – Options for Active-Duty Members:

Option 1:  Wait until the new AD provider starts seeing patients again (approximately August 2024).

Option 2:  Receive a referral to see a local civilian optometrist.

                   (Unlike dependents, AD members DO require a referral to get a routine eye exam off base.)

Referral process:

1.  Contact the Mountain Home AFB Optometry clinic to request a referral.

2.  Once you have a referral, schedule an eye exam (make sure the provider still accepts TRICARE).

3.  After the exam, bring your glasses prescription to the Optometry Clinic so we can order any glasses or inserts that you require.  (The only free glasses are those located in the Optometry Clinic.  Any glasses purchased from a civilian source are at the member’s own expense.)

4.  Make sure your civilian eye exam chart notes are sent to Medical Records located on the second floor of the 366 Medical Group.

Notes:

1.  Contact lens fittings and contact lens purchases are NOT covered by TRICARE (unless you have certain pathological eye conditions. See https://www.tricare.mil/CoveredServices/Vision/GlassesContacts.  If you receive a contact lens prescription renewal as part of your civilian eye exam, you will be charged for the fitting fee as well as the contact lens purchase.

2.  You may have to activate your referral. Please reach out to referral management (contact information below) for referral questions.

3.  Occupational health exams WILL still be available at the Optometry clinic (visual acuity testing, color vision testing, flight line driver’s license evaluations, initial laser screenings).
