The Eye Clinic of Fort Leonard Wood has the leading providers of comprehensive eye care. Our goal is to deliver excellence in eye care for patients of all ages by combining medical expertise and advanced technology with a commitment to personal attention and customer service.

Mission:

Deliver leading-edge comprehensive and compassionate, quality eye health care, maximize the vision readiness of our force, and provide exceptional education and training opportunities.

Services and Programs:

  • Comprehensive vision exams, contact lens exams (time/space available for existing contact lens wearers, no new fits), and occupational and driver's physicals. Physicals (Airborne, Ranger, Sapper, etc.) are performed on a walk-in basis from 7:30 a.m. to 9:00 a.m. daily.
  • All active duty Family Members are eligible for care in the Optometry Clinic. Retirees will be seen as space is available. Please call or stop in to check on the status of our retiree eye care.
  • Active duty and Retired service members are eligible to order glasses from the Optometry Clinic.
  • Dilation is recommended for most patients at their comprehensive examination. Dilation requires eye drops to enlarge the pupil and provide the most thorough health evaluation of the eyes. The side effects of dilation are blurry vision (primarily up close) and light sensitivity. Patients are encouraged to bring a driver with them to their appointment in the case of dilation.
  • Refractive Surgery: Please review the eligibility requirements here
Please bring the following items to all exams:
  • ID card
  • Current medication list
  • Current glasses and sunglasses
