As the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak continues to spread, organizations are preparing for various anticipated effects on their operations such as increased business interruption and expected delays due to the potential presence of the virus on their premises, employee absenteeism, or supply chain disruptions. This includes the Naval Ophthalmic Support and Training Activity which is operating under reduced staffing to comply with social distance requirements, yet continue to meet our mission to support the operational readiness of the Armed Forces worldwide.
G-eyes is temporarily available to all Actice Duty Service Members at all addresses (APO/FPO and US addresses) to directly reorder eyewear and assist with social distancing.
For more detailed information on specific issues or orders, please call or email NOSTRA’s Customer Service Division. Voice mail messaging and emails will be continuously monitored and be a much more proficient process to receive needed and timely responses.

NOSTRA is home to the Tri-Service Optician School (TOPS) for the Navy, Army and Air Force. TOPS is an intensive six month course of instruction with successful students certifying as opticians. The program is recognized by the National Academy of Opticianry; upon completion, students will receive full credit toward an associate degree within the Virginia Community College System. In 1991, the National Optician’s Accreditation Association conferred full accreditation for both the Laboratory Technician and the Dispensing Technician programs, the only Optician School in the nation to have both programs fully accredited.
