Contact Lenses

Tricare does not cover contact lens services. NHCCP Optometry will do exams for current contact lens wearers if possible. The patient should wear their contacts to the exam and must bring in their current contact lens information (contact lens boxes, blister packages, and/or prior written contact prescription). The clinic may provide contact lens evaluations, with trial lenses that are in stock, for SOME previous contact lens wearers. The clinic does not do initial contact lens fittings.

Refractive Surgery

Laser eye surgery i.e. PRK, LASIK is currently being offered only for active duty.  In order to be considered for surgery, a minimum of two documented full eye exams at least one year apart is required.  You must also be over 21, have a stable prescription, enough time left on active duty status, and have a prescription within the defined limits. If these prerequisites are met,  we will assist you in obtaining refractive surgery.
