Eye Exams Carlsbad CA

Eye exams at our Carlsbad, CA practice

Here at our Encinitas or Carlsbad, CA optometry practice, comprehensive eye exams are an integral part of our day-to-day work. Exams give our doctors the chance to check for serious conditions or diseases that need to be treated, like glaucoma, cataracts, macular degeneration, and more. 

During an exam, we also check your visual acuity and accuracy so we can prescribe or update your glasses or contact lenses. Vision plays an important role in almost every aspect of life, from seeing your family to reading a menu. Exams make sure that your eyes are working at peak performance!

What to expect at your exam

During your exam, our doctors will take you through a series of tests to assess your visual health and accuracy. At each test, we make sure to explain what the patient can expect, and what our doctors are looking for.

Eye disease diagnosis

Our Carlsbad eye doctors carefully examine each eye for signs of ocular disease. Early eye disease diagnosis is vital to addressing these issues at their early stages, when they are most treatable. If signs of ocular disease should appear, our doctors will carefully explain the condition, the best approach to management, and answer any optometry questions that you may have.

Selecting your eyeglasses

At the end of your appointment, you may choose to visit our optical shop. If you are looking to update your eyewear, have just received a lens prescription, or are seeking a pair of sunglasses to protect you from the California rays, this is the place to be! At our Carlsbad, CA office, we are proud to offer the latest designer frames so that you can see better in style. We have a dedicated optician who will help you find a pair that will compliment your face and your lifestyle.

Contact lens exams fittings

If contact lenses are the right choice for your day-to-day life, our optometry team will ensure that you are prescribed the perfect contact lenses for your needs and lifestyle. Certain corneal diseases require specialty contact lens fittings, which our team will carefully fit to your treatment needs.

Pediatric eye exams

It can be difficult for children to recognize abnormalities with their own eyes or vision. This makes children’s eye exams extremely important. Our doctors can ensure that your child’s vision is accurate and comfortable and screen for any potential issues so that we can be proactive with treatment. Visit our Carlsbad pediatric eye doctor page to learn more about our pediatric eye care services.

Senior eye exams

Certain conditions like cataracts and glaucoma become more common with age. Patients ages 65 and older should come in for a senior eye exam at least once a year so that our doctors can diagnose and treat any potential issues that may arise.

Helpful reviews

  • “JUST AMAZING! Today there are so many options when it comes to eye care. Dr. Morgan has an honest and modern take on eye health. He explains the process from start to finish so you stay well informed. I wish there were more than five stars! If you are looking for an optometrist in the North County San Diego area, I highly suggest Dr. Morgan and the Beyond Vision Staff!”

  • “Dr Morgan was extremely kind, patient, sweet and really helped out with the issues I have with my eyes. My visit was so fast and efficient. I used to be afraid of getting eye drops in my eyes, but he gave me tips to do it a lot easier. I also interacted with Dr. Raja who was equally charming and welcoming. She was beyond patient with me and gave me great advice as I took my time to select my brand-new glasses! I might have to come back soon for a second pair!”

    – Thomas P.

  • “I had a great experience with Dr. Raja who was so personable and easy to talk to. She helped me understand my computer eye fatigue and prescribed me glasses that help me with my work-from-home setup. Beyond Vision Center also has a great selection of frames!”
