DD Form 771, Eyewear Prescription is a form used for ordering prescription eyewear. The majority of orders are made via the Department of Defense (DoD) Spectacle Request Transmission System (SRTS) that provides a ready-made DD 771 when an order is printed out. If an area has no access to the SRTS the form may be completed and sent digitally or printed out and handed in to the servicing lab.
The DoD updated the form - sometimes incorrectly referred to as the DA Form 771 - in July 1996 with all previous editions being obsolete. An up-to-date DD Form 771 fillable version is available for digital filing and download below.
Both service members and retirees may use the DD 771. Retirees are eligible for annual eyewear orders. Those who have a TRICARE health plan and the required authorization may order eyewear through the Military Treatment Facility (MTF) or the Navy Ophthalmic Support Training Activity Command (NOSTRA) website if the nearest MTF is 50 miles away.
