The Ophthalmology/Optometry Department provides comprehensive care and management of all eye problems. The department performs routine eye exams as well as exams for eyeglass prescriptions.

Important information:

  • The department does not measure, fit, or evaluate for contact lenses.
  • Neither contact lenses nor eyeglasses are covered by any Yale Health insurance.
  • You should remove your contact lenses prior to your appointment and bring your eyeglasses with you. 
  • Your eyes may be dilated during the exam and may remain blurry or sensitive to light for up to a few hours.

Note: Medicare retirees are not eligible to receive eye care services at the Yale Health Center.

Students who have waived Yale Health Hospitalization/Specialty Care coverage need to seek services from providers who accept their insurance. They cannot be seen at Yale Health Ophthalmology and Optometry.
