What does Base Curve (BC) mean?

Base Curve

The base curve (BC) is a part of your contact lens prescription. It relates to the curvature of your eye and typically is a measurement in the range 8.0 to 9.5. Your doctor measures the curvature of your eye during your contact lens exam and chooses the base curve for your contacts appropriately.
