How can I schedule an appointment?
All routine eye exams are by appointment only and do not require a referral. TRICARE Prime patients can schedule routine appointments on-line, at tricareonline.com, or through the appointment line (661-277-7118). Appointments for TRICARE Standard and TRICARE for Life patients are scheduled by the appointment desk on a space available basis. This means an appointment must still be available within 48 work hours to be scheduled. Routine appointments are not scheduled by the clinic.
Acute problems are seen on a walk-in basis and should call the appointment desk to be connected directly to the clinic.

What should I bring to my appointment?
For routine eye exams, patients should bring in their current prescription glasses or a copy of their old prescription. Patients coming in for a contact lens prescription update should wear their current contact lenses to the appointment. They also need to provide a copy of the current lens prescription, or bring in the contact lens boxes.

What services does the Optometry clinic provide?
The Optometry Clinic provides state-of-the-art, comprehensive eye care. This includes but is not limited to: prescription of eyeglasses, contact lens prescription updates (not initial contact lens fittings) and diagnosis and treatment of eye diseases such as glaucoma, macular degeneration, and diabetic retinal exams. The Optometry
Clinic has an excellent referral relationship with many top specialists in the local community and should be the first point of contact for all vision and eye related problems.
