All eye exams aren’t the same. Most optometric and eye care centers only provide vision tests to update prescriptions. However, our optometrists provide comprehensive eye exams that update your prescriptions while also running diagnostic tests to ensure optimal eye health. We have a proactive approach to eye health — instead of waiting for symptoms to manifest, we identify and treat all vision problems at the earliest stage possible. We combine exceptional and personalized care with cutting-edge technologies to provide the best diagnostic and treatment services in Carlsbad.Eye Exams
Our qualified optometrists and opticians help you choose the ideal pair of frames and lenses from a wide selection of durable designer glasses. Our optometric center in Carlsbad is stocked with the latest eyewear collections from some of the most reputable American and European brands. We want to ensure that you actively love wearing your glasses — we do that by making sure your chosen glasses compliment your style and personality, combining functionality with aesthetic sensibilities. We also provide the latest lens technologies in Carlsbad, including high index, Transitions, progressive addition, polycarbonate, multifocal, and polarized lenses.Glasses
At David W. Stemley, O.D., you can get the best contact lens brands that combine comfort with clarity. We provide a wide range of contact lens styles, including soft lenses, rigid lenses, toric lenses, multifocal lenses, colored lenses, disposable lenses, and more. Our trained and reputable opticians examine your prescriptions to help you choose the ideal contact lenses according to your prescription and preference. We also simplify the entire contact lens fitting process — guiding you through every step of the contact lens journey, from the vision tests to the reordering process.Contact Lenses
If you want to get rid of your glasses and contact lenses, you may be considering Lasik surgery to restore your 20/20 vision. Lasik surgery is an incredibly safe and effective surgical procedure that restores optimal eyesight without severe side effects or complications. But is Lasik surgery right for your specific needs? Are you eligible for this life-altering procedure? Our optometrists in Carlsbad administer numerous vision tests to determine your suitability for the Lasik eye surgery while also answering all your questions and concerns about the procedure.LASIK Consultation
As we get older our eyesight and visual acuity go through numerous changes. Over time, you may develop several refractive errors, like nearsightedness, farsightedness, astigmatism, or presbyopia. You may also develop other vision problems, such as age-related macular degeneration, diabetic retinopathy, cataracts, etc. At David W. Stemley, O.D., we have a proactive approach to vision problems — we identify the earliest warning signs of vision problems with annual eye exams to effectively treat them before they affect your ocular health. If something about your vision seems amiss, contact your optometrist in Carlsbad today.Vision Problems
Thanks to advanced eye care techniques and cutting-edge technologies, most eye conditions and diseases are now entirely treatable. However, most eye conditions rapidly worsen if left untreated — skipping or delaying treatments may lead to permanent loss of vision or blindness. At David W. Stemley, O.D., we pride ourselves on using the latest diagnostic standards and technologies to treat all eye conditions before they have a chance to cause severe damages. We regularly diagnose and treat eye conditions like macular degeneration, glaucoma, diabetic retinopathy, and many more.Eye Care
