    I don't think so. We had to pay out of pocket for Ryan's. They did give him the massive Navy issue ones, but I don't think you are wanting those!

    From what I undestand they will cover the eye exam, but not the glasses for the dependant. Dh had to get some for when he reads and is on the computer and the navy did give him some pretty ugly ones *lol*. We had to pay ourselves for a decent looking pair for him.

    That is right, they will pay for the exam but not the glasses. Which is not right to me, if I need them then they should pay for a part of them.

    You gotta love those BCG! They don't cover eye glasses. Face it, most health care doesn't pay for eye exams. You need eye insurace for that.
