    Vision Question

    Advertisements
    [I feel super silly for asking this, but I wanna get other people's experience, etc. I think I might be able to call TriCare about it, but it's 6:06 here lol]




    I need knew glasses like now, and I'm not sure if I have to go to the vision clinic in the actual clinic or if I can go to the vision place in our BX.

    Are there other bases that have vision clinics in their BX?

    Also, do I need to bring my vision records? I've had a long string of different prescription so


    [Please be gentle]

    You can go wherever you want.

    They do not see families on base unless you are overseas.

    You get a free eye exam through Tricare but you are 100% on
    your own for glasses or contacts.

    And no need to bring your vision records. Just bring the glasses you're wearing now.

    Just wanted to add a little tidbit of info.

    I just recently bought a pair of eyeglasses from Eyeglasses - Prescription Glasses, Bifocal, Progressive Eyeglasses - GreatEyeglasses.com
    They have some cute frames, and were a really great price.
    I got frames/lenses that I will actually wear out in public for $60! I was impressed.
    Its something to think about since we have to pay out of pocket.
