On the basis of the findings of an examination made by an ophthalmologist, optometrist, or physician skilled in the diseases of the eye, recommended remedial eye care services must be provided to any individual under the age of sixty-five who is in need of remedial eye care services if the individual is not blind as defined under title XVI of the Social Security Act [42 U.S.C. 1381 et seq.], and the individual is otherwise qualified for assistance under this chapter. Except for services furnished in a medical emergency, the department may not pay for recommended remedial eye care services unless the individual receiving those services first applies for and receives authorization from the department. As used in this section, “remedial eye care services” mean services to prevent blindness or to restore an individual's eyesight, but does not include treatment of diseases causing an impairment or a loss of eyesight, such as diabetes and high blood pressure, ordinary eye examinations, eye glasses, physical examinations, or travel and other expenses necessary to receive treatment.
