I doubt you can. Eye examinations aren't covered by health insurance, unless you have a supplementary insurance that includes this. You are just expected to pay yourself.

Re: help please,

If an eye doctor had examined your eyes you might be able to claim. But a test with an optician that sells glasses - no.

Re: help please,

Here is something in English which says what is covered under a basic insurance.

https://en.comparis.ch/krankenkassen...sicherung.aspx

Depending on how much the eye examination cost, what other medical costs you have had in the year, and how large your 'franchise' (own contribution: usually 300 to 2'500 francs) is, you might not get anything, even if the examination is, in principle, covered by the insurance.
