En español | Medicare will not generally pay for vision screening, eye exams for glasses or eyeglasses, but it will pay for diagnosis and treatment if you have a chronic eye condition, such as cataracts or glaucoma. If you have diabetes, Medicare will pay for an eye exam once every 12 months to check for eye disease due to the condition.
