going to an opthomologist? The naval clinic has an optometrist but im not satisfied that he says nothing is wrong with my eyes when i know for sure something has to be. My vision is blurry and feels like i am drunk.

I know tricare prime covers 1 exam a year, but that's all they cover.

 I think you have to get a referral.

Your optometrist must send in a referral to Tricare saying you should see one! I'd go to your normal Dr, doesn't sound like the problem is your vision even though that's what it's affecting.

Me too. Blood sugars also affect your eyesight. I would see your dr about it.
