317:30-3-65.7.Vision services
[Revised 10-01-18]

Children and adolescents should receive periodic eye and vision examinations to diagnose and treat any eye disease in its early stages in order to prevent or minimize vision loss and maximize visual abilities.

(1) At a minimum, vision services include diagnosis and treatment for defects in vision, including eyeglasses once each twelve (12) months. In addition, payment is made for glasses for members with congenital aphakia or following cataract removal (refer to OAC 317:30-5-2(b)(5) for amount, duration, and scope). Payment is limited to only two (2) glasses per year for a member. Any glasses beyond the two (2) glasses limit must be prior authorized and determined to be medically necessary (refer to 317:30-5-432.1 for more information on corrective lenses and optical supplies).

(2) The OHCA recommends that physicians adopt and utilize the American Optometric Association standards for vision screenings and examinations.
