The primary mission of the department is to correct vision problems of active duty personnel in the San Diego area so they are visually ready to perform their duties. Secondary missions include providing clinical training for optometry students and ophthalmology residents.
The Optometry Department offers a variety of specialty services to meet many of your eye care needs.
We have six locations around the San Diego area with most clinics offering appointment availability for Active Duty Personnel Monday - Friday. We are currently unable to see retirees or dependents in our clinics for exams due to staffing shortages.
Please call the Optometry Appointment Desk at (619) 532-9830 to schedule your next eye exam.
In case of emergency during clinic hour (M-F 0700-1600), please call (619) 532-5840 and a technician will assist you in determining the proper course of action.
In case of emergency after hours, please visit the NMCSD Emergency Room.
