Our doctors examine, diagnose, treat, and manage diseases, injuries, and disorders of the visual system, the eye and related structures, as well as identify related systemic conditions affecting the eye.

Walk-in exams are available on a first-come, first-serve basis every Monday and Wednesday at the Hornet Health Clinic from 7:50 AM to 9:30 AM. Priority is given for flight physicals, readiness, deployment exams and LASER surveillance program exams. All other examinations should schedule an appointment.

If patients lose or break their glasses, but have a current eye examination in their health record (< 2yrs old), they may walk in without appointment to the main-side hospital clinic to reorder glasses or obtain a copy of their spectacle prescription to be filled elsewhere. Active duty members are entitled to one frame of choice per year AND also standard issue frames.

* Tricare Prime enrollees are eligible to receive comprehensive eye exams and selected frames.
Dependents/Family Members (TriWest):

Please arrive 15 MINUTES early to your appointment. Active duty patients should wear the uniform of the day & bring their medical record.
Your eyes may be dilated at your examination depending on your medical eye history and we encourage patients to bring sunglasses as light sensitivity may occur after dilation. We provide temporary sunglasses if needed.
