Eye Examinations
Provided on an appointment basis for active duty personnel and TRICARE Prime enrollees. Optometry appointments for non-enrolled beneficiaries can be booked 2 hours in advance, on a space available basis. If there are no available optometry appointments within 2 hours, the patient may call back and check for an available appointment later in the day. Children 5 years of age and above may be scheduled for a routine optometry exam; those below age 5 require an appointment with their pediatrician, who will determine the appropriate referral route for vision care. Eye examinations include a complete assessment of the health of the visual system and determination of spectacle prescription. Vision testing for driver’s license renewal forms requires a routine eye examination appointment.
Contact Lens
Services are limited to prescription updates for patients who currently successfully wear contact lenses, who have the lenses for assessment of proper fit, and who have contact lens prescription information to identify all necessary lens parameters. Initial fits and contact lens insertion and removal training are not offered at this clinic.
Military Spectacles
Fitted, ordered, adjusted, and repaired for active duty and retired service members. Retired service members having a current spectacle prescription (less than 1 year old) from a civilian eye doctor may order military spectacles by bringing this prescription to the Optometry Clinic during normal operating hours. Referrals are not required.
Vision Readiness Screening
All US Army soldiers are required to complete an annual vision readiness screening. This screening is available on a walk-in basis during normal clinic hours. Soldiers are required to bring all current military eyewear (glasses and protective mask inserts) to the screening. This is not a comprehensive eye exam and those determined to have deficient vision and spectacles are required to schedule a routine appointment.
Refractive Surgery Program (LASIK, PRK)
Those active duty soldiers (including AGR) service members interested in requesting refractive surgery must schedule a routine appointment with Dunham Optometry. All necessary forms will be furnished and completed during the appointment.  For more information please visit the Walter Reed National Military Medical Center Refractive Surgery website at: http://www.bethesda.med.navy.mil/patient/health_care/specialty_surgery_services/ophthalmology/laser_vision_center.aspx
