Contact lens examinations are performed to asses your individual needs to prescribe the contact lens technology that will provider the best vision and comfort.

medical services

Since a contact lens is a prescribed medical device designed to sit in your eye for prolonged periods, it is necessary to evaluate the health of the eye to fit you properly. During this appointment our optometrists will evaluate your cornea on which the contact lens is directly sitting which includes your tear production to fit you with an appropriate size and style of lens.

Your fitting will include training for safe insertion, removal and care by our technicians if you are a first time wearer. Dr. Erb, Dr. Chute and Dr. Purdy specialize in contact lenses including:

  • Toric (to correct astigmatism)
  • Multifocal (for those who need bifocals)
  • Monovision (another option for those who need bifocals)
  • Soft lenses (daily and extended wear)
  • Tinted / Color (prescription and cosmetic)
  • “Hard” lenses – Rigid Gas Permeable (RGP)
  • Scleral lenses – specialty lenses for patients with keratoconus or severe dry eye
  • Hybrid lenses - speciality lenses for keratoconus that combines the comfort of a soft lens with the vision correction of an RGP lens

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.
