Comprehensive Eye Exams are an important part of preventative healthcare. It's more than just updating your glasses prescription - we evaluate the overall health of your eye

eye exams

Many eye conditions have no obvious signs or symptoms and are discovered during a comprehensive exam. Early detection and treatment improves your quality of life and can prevent vision loss.

This is what you can expect during your comprehensive eye exam at Optical Studio:

  • Review your visual and systemic health history
  • Discussion of current medications, Social and environmental influences and family medical history
  • Visual acuity Measurement
  • Check color vision and depth perception
  • Refraction (using lenses to find your corrective prescription)
  • Eye pressure measurement
  • Dilated evaluation of your retinal health

Pediatric Eye Care is all too often overlooked as part of a child’s preventative care, relying instead on screenings at the pediatrician or at school. many vision problems are relatively asymptomatic in children and can be easily missed. The American Optometric Association recommends comprehensive eye exams for children at six months, 3 years, before first grade, and annually thereafter unless otherwise indicated.

Your child may not recognize they are having vision difficulty because they think the way they see is the way everybody sees. Here are some signs your child may have a vision problem: Eye rubbing or blinking Short attention span Avoiding reading and other close activities Covering one eye Tilting the head to one side An eye turning in or out Seeing double Losing place when reading Difficulty remembering what they read

Dr. Erb and her staff make me feel like I am the reason they are there. They listen and evaluate and present back to me in a manner that is free of technical language allowing me to understand what the issues are and how their recommendations will improve my eyesight.

I saw Dr. Purdy. He and his staff were very courteous and efficient. The office is beautiful and they seem to have state of the art equipment. It was my first visit to Optical Studio and I was impressed. I will be returning next time I need their services.
