WRIGHT-PATTERSON AIR FORCE BASE, Ohio – The Army & Air Force Exchange Service encourages the Wright-Patterson Air Force Base community to protect and preserve their eye health with optometric care this March, which is National Save Your Vision Month.

The Wright-Patterson Exchange is home to Vista Optical, which is among more than 140 Exchange optical centers and optometry clinics worldwide, serving military families, retired service members, disabled veterans as well as DoD and Coast Guard civilians and retirees. Authorized military shoppers with in-store shopping privileges can schedule eye exams or bring valid prescriptions to the optical center for eyeglasses, frames, contact lenses and other vision care accessories.

“The Exchange is all in to support the eye health of the military community during Save Your Vision Month and beyond,” said Exchange General Manager Adam Shaw. “The Exchange makes it easier to achieve optimal eye health with preventative and routine care available at the BX.”

Exchange optometry clinics accept TRICARE and most insurances. The Exchange’s BE FIT 360 program also offers additional services to support the health and wellness of the military community, including durable medical equipment shops, dental offices, cryotherapy centers and chiropractic care.
