Things to know before your Optometry Appointment:

  • If you wear glasses, bring them (even if they are broken).
  • If you are being dilated, you must schedule an escort to drive you home after your appointment.
  • If you wear contacts, come with them in the case. Don't wear them to the appointment.
  • Laser Refractive Surgery is only for active duty military members.
  • We only issue eyeglasses to military active duty.
  • Standardard military issue glasses also known as BCGs.
  • Know which protective eyewear your unit uses so we can order the inserts. We do not supply the protective eyewear, only the inserts.
  • Pick up your glasses! When you get the AKO email that your glasses are in, come to the clinic and pick them up within two weeks or we ship them back to be recycled.
  • If you are going to be out of town or deployed, let us know during ordering.
  • No children under 16 years of age will be seen without a parent present.
  • Contact lenses prescriptions can be done if time willing and at the doctors discretion.
  • Contact lenses are not sold or issued at the MTF.
