Limited Contact Lens Services at Rader Clinic
Contact Lens (CL) fitting is not a TRICARE covered benefit; however, the
optometrist may opt to update your current CL prescription if time permits.
If you are presently a CL wearer, and you are not having any difficulties
with your CLs, the standard procedure is as follows:
Schedule an appointment for a comprehensive eye exam. For the exam, you
should bring your glasses and CLs along with your CL information. (Your CL
information is on the CL packaging. You can simply bring it with to the
exam.) At your first visit, you may be dilated and the optometrist may
instruct you to return for a follow-up visit to complete the CL evaluation
and update your CL prescription.
