    SURE DO!!!!!!
    At least I know this for Prime. They cover one eye exam every year. They even cover contacts if you have a certain eye condition.

    I believe they cover exams..but that may be it. I know they cover exams overseas. They do not cover glasses, contacts, for the dependants unless there are specific medical conditions that require them

    You can get an exam once a year at a vision center. Just call tri-care or a vision center to see if they accept tri-care or can give you the name of one that does.

    They only cover the normal eye exam though. If you want a contact lense exam you will have to pay for that yourself
    An unconditional right to say what one pleases about public affairs is what I consider to be the minimum guarantee of the First Amendment.

    I had a contact exam on base and it was paid for and so was my trail pair. And they cover one exam for glasses a year but nothing for your frames.

    i have never understood why they dont pay for part of your glasses. i have two kids in glasses and it gets really expensive! but if they covered it, that would make sense and we all know in the land of military logic that that wont work!
