Routine eye examination appointments for TRICARE Prime enrollees may be accessed by calling (803) 751-CARE.  These appointments are located in the hospital's Optometry clinic in the EENT clinic on the third floor.  Space available depends on daily mission schedules and is limited.  As with any emergency, persons with eye emergencies should proceed to the nearest emergency room.  Contact lens exams are not being provided at this time unless medically indicated.  All patients are asked to arrive 15 minutes prior to their appointment time.  Additional information on appointment availability may be obtained by calling the number below.

The Physical Exam Section (PES) conducts physicals, and the Optometry section of PES supports that mission and acts as eye consultants for the Military Entrance Processing Station (MEPS).  The primary mission of PES Optometry is the screening and evaluation of receptees and/or soldiers in training to ensure their vision readiness to successfully complete training.  At the Physical Exam Station, priority is always given to members deploying.
