Oregon Health Plan (OHP) Eye and Vision Care

Medical Care

OHP covers screening and treatment for medical conditions (such as cataracts, glaucoma, and accident or injury to the eye).

Eye Exams

OHP covers medical eye exams for any eye condition. Diagnostic services are also covered.

OHP covers routine vision exams for "disorders of refraction and accommodation" (e.g., nearsightedness, farsightedness, astigmatism):

  • Once every 24 months for adults age 21 or older.
  • When clinically appropriate for OHP members under age 21 and pregnant adults.

Glasses or Contact Lenses

OHP covers glasses, fittings for glasses or contact lenses when clinically appropriate for:

  • Pregnant adults (age 21 and older) and
  • Children under age 21.

For non-pregnant adults (age 21 and older), OHP covers glasses or contact lenses for only these specific medical conditions:

  • Aphakia, pseudoaphakia, congenital aphakia, keratoconus; or
  • The natural lenses of the eye are missing; or
  • Has had a keratoplasty surgical procedure (e.g., corneal transplant). For this condition, OHP only covers contact lens services and supplies.

Other vision services need to be approved by OHP or your CCO.
