Referral Requirement


  NOTE: As of September 14, 2010, all services provided by the Eye Service are available to all MIT employees and dependents who are enrolled in either MIT-sponsored health plans—the MIT Traditional Health Plan or the MIT Choice Plan.


Our optometrists and ophthalmologists work closely together to give the MIT community a complete range of eye services, including:

Optometry/primary care: refraction, binocular vision evaluation, contact lens services, and detection and treatment of eye diseases. Patients who are members of the following health plans are not charged for comprehensive eye examinations at the Eye Service:

Patients enrolled in another MIT-sponsored health insurance plan must make a $10 copayment for comprehensive eye exams and contact lens fitting checkups. All other patients will be responsible for paying the comprehensive eye examination fee.

Ophthalmology: Consultations, surgical care and further treatment of eye disease. If ophthalmology subspecialists are required, we refer patients to physicians affiliated with Massachusetts Eye and Ear Infirmary and Ophthalmic Consultants of Boston (OCB).

Contact lenses: Comprehensive contact lens care including fitting, dispensing and consultation. The lenses can be ordered for you and dispensed by the Eye Service. Periodic follow-up visits are recommended to evaluate the fit and vision correction of the lenses.

Patients who provide the Eye Service with their current contact lens specifications can have their contact lens prescription rewritten or updated (including power changes) at no extra charge if the current lens fit is satisfactory to both the patient  and provider. For any change in lens type or curvature, contact lens refitting fees will apply. These charges are not covered by any of the MIT health plans.

MIT Optical – The Eyeglass Store: MIT Optical offers hundreds of name-brand and designer eyeglass frames and fast, high-quality service to all members of the MIT community, with 25 percent discounts for MIT students and those enrolled in an MIT-sponsored health insurance plan.
