Contact lenses at our Carlsbad office

For patients who wear prescription contacts, their lenses can define their day. From putting them in when they wake up, ensuring effortless vision during the day, and removing them at night, patients’ contacts are an important part of each day. That’s why here at BVC, we ensure that our patients’ contact prescriptions are perfect for their vision needs, lifestyle, and comfort level.

When we prescribe contact lenses

During a comprehensive eye exam, our doctors will assess your visual acuity with a series of tests. If it is determined that there is a refractive error that needs to be corrected, we will walk you through all your options to achieve effortless vision. Some patients may elect to solely wear glasses if that aligns with their vision needs and lifestyle.

Many patients choose to be fitted for contact lenses in addition to glasses thanks to the ease they provide. If this is your first time using contact lenses, there are a few steps our doctors will take to ensure that your lenses fit perfectly. This process includes measurements of the eye’s surface, a tear film evaluation, and a final fitting test.

Types of contact lenses

Thanks to the advancements of modern optometry, there are many different types of contact lenses to fit the needs of any patient. From the lens material to the wearing time, we will work with you to choose the type that works best for your eyes and vision needs. The most common contact lens material is silicone hydrogel lenses, which are an advanced type of soft lenses.

Other types include gas permeable lenses and hybrid contact lenses. Some lenses must only be worn for one day, while some can last for weeks to months with proper care. It is important to adhere to the proper wear time of your contact lenses to keep your eyes healthy.

How contact lenses work

Contact lenses function by refocusing the direction of light rays onto the retina for proper refraction. This is also how glasses work, but contact lenses are far thinner, thanks to their ability to rest directly on the eye, providing greater ease of wear.

Specialty contact lens fittings

Specialty contact lenses are designed to treat corneal diseases that typical prescription contacts do not address. Dr. Morgan and Dr. Nicholson specialize in these contact fittings and are ready to help patients treat corneal disease with this highly effective, individualized treatment. These lenses help to treat conditions including high astigmatism, keratoconus, corneal dystrophies (irregular corneas), severe dry eyes, and corneal scarring.

When trying out contact lenses for the first time, it can take some time to get used to putting them in, taking them out, and wearing them in general. During your final lens fitting, we will ensure that you have mastered the process of wearing contacts and are comfortable with how they feel and how they correct your vision. If any concerns arise during use, we are always happy to answer any questions, whether over the phone or in a follow-up appointment.

Contact lenses FAQ

Can contact lenses get stuck behind the eye?
When first wearing contacts, many patients express concern that their lenses will get washed behind their eye and stuck. Thankfully, this cannot happen! On rare occasions, they may slide under the eyelid but can be flushed out with saline.
Can kids wear contacts?
Yes! Children who are able to properly care for their contact lenses with supervision can wear contacts. This often enables them to be more freely active without worrying about a pair of glasses falling off or breaking.
Do contact lenses hurt?
When patients first begin wearing contacts, they may experience some discomfort as they adjust to the process of putting them in. After that, they should be comfortable! If you are experiencing pain with your contact lenses, call our office right away.

Helpful Reviews

  • “Amazing experience! Dr. Morgan was excellent—very personable, thorough, and knowledgeable. I'd been having trouble seeing, even with glasses and contact lenses. No previous doctor had been able to figure out why. Dr. Morgan did! He diagnosed me with keratoconus and was able to answer all my questions in a way I could understand. I will see him again soon so he can fit me with scleral lenses. Thank you, Dr. Morgan and Beyond Vision for taking care of me. I will be recommending you guys to everyone I know!!”
