Our optometry staff

When you come in for a comprehensive eye exam, our Carlsbad optometry staff will determine if you need prescription lenses or if we need to update your prescription. Dr. Raja or Dr. Morgan will perform refractive error tests and other services to identify what prescription is necessary to correct your vision.

When you are selecting your frames, our wonderful opticians Susanna and Rhonda will help you find your perfect pair of frames and fit them to your face.

Prescription lenses for eye conditions like myopia, astigmatism, and more

During your comprehensive exam, our doctors will determine which type of refractive error you have that needs to be corrected with contacts or glasses for optimal visual performance and eye health. Though each type affects your vision differently, they all cause blurred vision and require prescription lenses. Types of refractive errors include astigmatism, hyperopia, myopia, and presbyopia.

Astigmatism occurs when the cornea is misshapen and light cannot be bent properly. Hyperopia occurs when the eyeball is too short and light focuses behind the retina, affecting near vision. Myopia affects distance vision and happens when the eyeball is too short and the light focuses on the retina. With presbyopia, the lens starts to become less flexible with age, making it difficult to focus on close objects.

Determining your prescription during exams

Once our optometry Carlsbad staff determines that you have a refractive error, your exact prescription will be determined through a series of lens tests. As you look through a phoropter, you will identify letters with each eye separately and then in tandem to find your perfect prescription.

More about our optical shop


Once I select a pair of frames, how long will it take to get them back with my prescription?
Once you have selected your perfect pair of frames, we know the anticipation to get them back is high! Our turnaround time is usually about 1-2 weeks. Once we receive your new glasses from the lab, we do our own in-house inspections to ensure that you are receiving the best quality glasses.
How often should I come in to have my prescription updated?
We recommend that patients come into our optometry center for a comprehensive exam annually to check up on your eye health. However, if you notice any changes in your vision, come in for a visit sooner so that we can ensure your vision is working at peak performance.
How long does the process of picking out frames take?
Picking out a new pair of frames takes as long as the individual patient needs! Eye exams usually take between 30 minutes and an hour, with the optical shop visit coming after. Some patients may find a pair they love immediately, while others may try on several pairs before finding the winner. It is important to not rush the process!
