    Eye/Tricare Question...

    Advertisements
    Im guessing it doesnt, but I was wondering if Tricare covers eye exams? I know it probably doesnt the glasses, I wasnt expecting it to, but I need to get my eyes checked...Thanks in advance...

    I think they cover part of the exams. I think it's just for an eye glass exam though not contacts. But I'd call and ask!

    They told me that they cover one eye exam a year unless you have a health problem such as diabetes. They do not cover glasses or contacts

    They do glasses exams but not glasses-I just had mine done about 3 months ago & wasted my time thinking all along it was for contacts & then they told me they don't do contacts exams as they handed me my glasses prescription!
