Curated Selection of Designer Glasses

The right pair of glasses instantly transforms your appearance. With the wrong pair of glasses, you’re just someone with bad eyesight. But the right pair of glasses can transform you into someone attractive and fashionable.

At David W. Stemley, O.D., our trained opticians discuss your preferences and lifestyle to guide you towards the ideal pair of glasses to match your personality and facial features. We want you to love your glasses rather than simply tolerating them.

Functional & Fashionable

Finding attractive frames isn’t enough — they must also compliment your lifestyle. We stock an extensive and curated selection of designer eyewear for every occasion. Whether you need glasses for the gym, for work, for casual Sundays, or for cocktail events, we’ve got you covered.

All you have to do is inform our opticians of the necessary events or occasions — they’ll put together the ideal selection of eyewear for all the necessary events in your life. You can rest assured that we’ll provide glasses that are both fashionable and functional.

Incredible Lens Choices

Your options don’t end with glasses and frames — you must also choose the ideal lens types and lens treatments. You may need different lens types and treatments to address different vision problems — your optometrist will discuss your preferences and prescriptions to recommend the ideal lenses.

At Dr. Stemley's office, we stock all types of lenses, including high index, multifocal, progressive addition, Transitions®, anti-reflective, polycarbonate, and polarized lenses. Our opticians will discuss the unique benefits and features of all the lens types and treatments to help you make an informed decision.

The Perfect Fit

There’s nothing quite as annoying as a pair of glasses that keeps slipping or sliding down your nose. The opposite is just as bad — when the glasses are so firmly attached that they dig into your nose, leaving a mark on the bridge of your nose.

Our opticians carefully adjust the glasses to ensure they fit perfectly, without slipping, sliding, or pinching your face. Your glasses will be customized according to your specific facial structure and anatomy, so they fit you like a glove. It is our mission to give you the best-fitting glasses Carlsbad can provide.

COVID-19 Update:

Dear Patient,
We are pleased to announce that the California Department of Public Health has given us permission to resume full scope eye care, including preventative care and postponed exams.

At Total Vision Care, the health of our patients, doctors, and associates is our top priority. We are taking precautions to ensure the safety of our community.

Health and safety protocols we are taking:

  • All visits are by appointment to ensure social distancing. This includes picking up of glasses/contact lenses, adjustments on glasses, and ordering new products.
  • Patients are asked to arrive to their appointment alone and notify us from your vehicle once you arrive (a parent/guardian may accompany a minor and a family member/caretaker may assist a senior). Please call the office and someone will greet you at the door.
  • Prior to your entry a team member will take your temperature, provide you with hand sanitizer and ask you a series of questions regarding your health and possible COVID-19 exposure. Our team members are all subject to these same screening protocols.
  • All doctors, associates, and patients must wear masks.
  • Our team sterilizes all equipment and surfaces after every patient and disinfects all frames prior to placing them back on display.

What we ask of patients:

  • If you have any of the following symptoms, you must reschedule your appointment for a future date: Fever, fatigue, cough, shortness of breath, gastro-intestinal symptoms (diarrhea, vomiting, nausea, or stomach pains), recent loss of smell or taste.
  • Please bring a mask which must be worn in our facilities at all times.
  • Your patience in adhering to new safety protocols.
  • Please feel welcome to communicate any questions that you have to your Total Vision Care practice associates.

In addition, we will continue to monitor CDC, WHO, governmental, and optometric associations guidelines and make changes as appropriate to protect our community. Thank you so much for your continued support of our practices. We appreciate your patience throughout this process and for trusting us with your eyecare needs.
