    Lasik??

    Advertisements
    My Dh has been wanting lasik eye correction for some time... I know Tricare will pay at least some for his. My eyesight far worse than his and at some point I would like to get mine done as well... Will they cover any of this procedure for dependents? TIA!

    But they will pay a portion for the soldiers themselves?

    They cover the whole procedure for AD but nothing for dependants. As far as I know they won;t do lasik but the PRK though. Same results just different procedure

    DH will be glad to hear that. I've always wanted it, and am planning on having it done as soon as we're in a place I can get it done and have the money. I'm so jealous though. I need it WAY worse than DH...

    We both need it too. He is getting his done after AIT, so that will be good. He looks hot in his glasses though.

    What is PRK? I'd like to look it up but not sure what it stands for.

    Thanks for the info, ladies. I'm going to start looking into it and see what it costs around here. I need it way worse than DH as well, but I'd rather him get his done. I wish Tricare wasn't so damn stingy

    FYI: They will NOT cover your AD dh UNLESS he qualifies, and I know that the requirements are pretty rigid. Just didn't want you to get all excited only to be disapointed!
