Military Spouse or Retiree? Simplify Your Family’s Eye Care

By on

When it comes down to it, you want the best care possible to keep you and your family healthy. However, when you’re juggling the household, appointments, kids’ events, and maybe even deployments, scheduling an annual eye exam can seem like the last thing on your to-do list. In the past when scheduling an appointment with your eye doctor, you may have needed a referral from your primary care doctor first, or perhaps one of your kids needed glasses and you had to budget the full cost of their eyewear.

Thankfully, the process to access eye care just got a whole lot easier! For the first time, military families can enjoy comprehensive vision benefits, including an allowance for eyewear and an eye exam without a referral. You and your family can now have the vision benefits you deserve, so you don’t have to worry about you or your family’s eye care and can focus on everything else that needs tackling.

Family members of active duty military, and retired service members and their families may be eligible for comprehensive vision benefits. Visit for more information.

    My husband is a retired Air Force Vet. I did not know that at the time of signing up for vision insurance that he would make us eligible for comprehensive benefit discounts(?). Our fees are over $500.00 a year and any discount would help us greatly since we are on a fixed income now.

    We’ve been using VSP Vision Care (not through Tricare) for several years. My husband is retired military and we recently went to Barnett Dulaney Perkins Eye Center for a thorough exam, i.e., cataracts, macular degeneration, etc. Between Medicare, Tricare and VSP, we had significant savings, paying only what would be considered a deductible. I pay about $140 a year for VSP for both my husband and I, and it is well worth it.
