Refractive Surgery Waiting List Information

Our database is very large and, due to the nature of our patients op-tempos, extremely dynamic. Unfortunately, this makes it very difficult to accurately predict waiting times. We recognize that most applicants are very anxious to have surgery, but we cannot provide accurate individual estimates of waiting times.

Please do not contact us for status updates. We are doing everything possible to expedite the process and will consider your application as soon as possible

usn.hampton-roads.navhospporsva.list.NMCP-Eye-LaserSurgery@mail.mil is available to answer questions about refractive surgery in general. We look forward to assisting you in the future.
