Medicare doesn’t usually cover eyeglasses or contact lenses.
However,  helps pay for corrective lenses if you have cataract surgery to implant an intraocular lens. Corrective lenses include one pair of eyeglasses with standard frames or one set of contact lenses.

Are colorblind glasses covered by medicare?

First off, we have not found an insurance plan that actually covers the cost of the color blind glasses. We have found people who are very creative in how they get their color blind glasses.

Medicare does cover High-Risk Screenings

One exception to the routine eye exam rule is for diabetics. Medicare will cover routine eye exams to check for disease related to diabetes. In addition, Medicare will cover glaucoma screenings every twelve months for high-risk people, including diabetics, people with a family history of glaucoma, African Americans age 50+ and Hispanics age 65 years of age or on Medicare part A and Medicare Part B. If you are color blind you have a unique opportunity when getting evey coverings post surgery you might be able to get a paid of eye covers that also act as color enhancement devices.

Surgical Coverage by Medicare

Although Medicare covers basic lens implants, it does not cover more advanced implants. If your provider recommends more advanced lens implants, you may have to pay some or all of the cost out of pocket and your medicare advantage wont kick in either to provide benefits that are not coordinated with medicare.
