History. This publication is a major revision.

Summary. This regulation has been revised to update the policies and responsibilities for providing ophthalmic services in a Joint Services environment.

Applicability. This regulation applies to all activities of the Active Army, the Army National Guard/Army National Guard of the United States, the U.S. Army Reserve, Navy ships and stations having medical department personnel, and the Air Force.

Proponent and exception authority. The proponent of this regulation is The Surgeon General. The proponent has the authority to approve exceptions or waivers to this regulation that are consistent with controlling law and regulations. The proponent may delegate this approval authority, in writing, to a division chief within the proponent agency or its direct reporting unit or field operating agency, in the grade of colonel or the civilian equivalent. Activities may request a waiver to this regulation by providing justification that includes a full analysis of the expected benefits and must include formal review by the activity's senior legal officers. All waiver requests will be endorsed by the commander or senior leader of the requesting activity and forwarded through their higher headquarters to the policy proponent. Refer to AR 25-30 for specific guidance.

Army management control process. This regulation contains internal control provisions in accordance with AR 11-2 and identifies key internal controls that must be evaluated (see appendix C ). Evaluation of these key internal controls by other DOD components is strongly encouraged. If other DOD components elect not to evaluate key internal controls identified in appendix C, then evaluation of internal controls must be accomplished in accordance with DODI 5010.40 . Air Force compliance items are identified by a Tier waiver authority number (T-0), which designates the proponent of this regulation as approval authority for waiver requests.

Supplementation. Supplementation of this regulation and establishment of command and local forms are prohibited without prior approval from The Surgeon General (DASG-PM-NC), 7700 Arlington Boulevard, VA 22042-5143.

Suggested improvements. Users are invited to send comments and suggested improvements on DA Form 2028 (Recommended Changes to Publications and Blank Forms) directly to The Surgeon General (DASG-HS), 7700 Arlington Boulevard, Falls Church, VA 22042-5143. Air Force users are invited to send comments and suggested improvements on AF Form 847 (Recommendations for Change of Publication) through channels to Headquarters, AFMSA, 7700 Arlington Blvd., Falls Church, VA 22041-5143.
