I think that Medicare approves eye exams. To find out more about the approval, visit any nearby Medicare offices or you can contact them. They offer many medical services and covers that help a lot of people.

Medicare does not cover routine eye exams unless they are medically necessary. Medicare Part B (Medical Insurance) covers a yearly eye exam for diabetic retinopathy, glaucoma tests once every 12 months for people at high risk for glaucoma and exams after you have cataract surgery. These exams must be conducted by an eye doctor who is legally allowed to do the test in your state.
Some Medicare Advantage plans include routine eye exams and benefits beyond what Original Medicare covers.
