  • Please arrive 15 minutes prior to your scheduled appointment for screening tests and bring your ID card, glasses & contact lenses with you.

Scope of Care:

The Optometry Clinic provides comprehensive optometric care to Active Duty and Diabetic Prime Patients. While we typically see all Prime patients, recently we have experienced short-staffing and are focusing on meeting access to care standards for our active duty patients.

Services include:

  • Routine Eye Exams
  • Diabetic Eye Exams
  • Primary Eye Care
  • Ocular Disease Care
  • Contact lens fittings are not a Tricare benefit. However, as a courtesy, we provide contact lens updates (we renew contact lens prescriptions.) Unfortunately, due to the materials and manpower required, we are not able to offer initial contact lens fittings for new contact lens wearers as we have very few contact lens trials available in office.

Refractive Surgery Information:

Laser eye surgery i.e. PRK, LASIK is currently being offered only for active duty at Naval Hospital Bremerton: https://www.med.navy.mil/sites/nhbrem/Patients/Pages/OphthalmologyClinicandRefractiveSurgeryCenter.aspx

Patients interested in a refractive surgery consult should first schedule an appointment for a comprehensive eye exam with Optometry.

In order to be considered for surgery, patients must meet the following standards:

  • Active duty
  • > 21 years old
  • Minimum of 1 year left on active duty
  • Stable glasses prescription with two separate eye exams over the period of one year (please bring a copy of your last civilian eyeglass prescription if this is your first comprehensive eye exam in the military as boot camp or military processing screenings do not count as comprehensive eye exams for refractive surgery purposes)
