At Optical Studio, we'll assist you in selecting the perfect lenses and frames to compliment you and your lifestyle! Our licensed dispensing opticians will guide you through the process of creating eyewear made just for you. As this process can be overwhelming with many different frame styles and lens technologies, our opticians will recommend all the right features to have you seeing and looking your best.

Frame Selection

We feature a variety of frame styles and colors to meet everyone's needs. Our expert opticians will assist you in finding a top of the line frame that is the best match for the lens technology you desire.

  • Plastic
  • Metal
  • Titanium
  • Rimless
  • Semi-Rimless


Lens Technology

Optical Studio provides all of our patients with the latest options in eyeglass lens technology. From anti-glare coatings to help you drive better at night to blue light technology to decrease eye fatigue from digital devices, we will recommend the right features to improve your vision and overall eye health.

Here are some options that you can discuss more with our opticians:

  • Digital High Definition Lenses
  • Crizal No-Glare Coating
  • Crizal Prevencia (blue light filtering lenses)
  • Progressive Lenses
  • Transitions Photochromic Lenses

Though sunglasses are most known as being a great fashion accessory, they are very
important for your overall eye health. That is why Optical Studio features fashionable sunwear with
the best eye protection with brands like Maui Jim and Smith Sun.

The first feature that we recommend you invest in a set of sunglasses which can provide at least 98% protection from UVA and UVB rays. The sun's UV radiation can cause the development of cataracts, macular degeneration and increase the risk of skin cancer around the eyes.

Another product to consider is a polarized pair of sunglasses. Polarized lenses block light reflected from surfaces like a flat road or smooth water. If you're involved in activities like water sports, skiing, golfing, biking, fishing, and even driving, polarized lenses can be very helpful in reducing glare and giving a clearer view.

Finally, if you have a youngster in the family, it's never too early to fit them with sunglasses. Children under the age of 20 are the most susceptible to the damaging effects of UV light. One concern of parents is that their child will scratch, break, or lose the sunglasses. Fortunately, Optical Studio carries impact resistant frames for kids.

Specialty Eyewear

There are many specialized lenses available for individual patient needs. Optical Studio will help you custom design glasses that will have you clearly doing the things you love.

Patient Testimonials

I walked out of the office with answers, an ability to make an informed decision and an action plan to work towards eye health. The staff was incredidibly helpful AND understanding of my fears and concerns. I cannot thank them enough for helping me on a day where I had no spoons left to give!  
I recently had my 1st eye exam. Dr. Laurel Chute was wonderful! The entire office is beautiful. The opticians went above and beyond to explain my vision care insurance and helped me pick out a pair of glasses. I had a great 1st time experience and would strongly recommend them. I will be back next year.  
I couldn't be more pleased with the care I receive at Optical Studio. The optometrists are skilled and caring, the technicians are kind and efficient, the medical receptionists are helpful and the opticians make finding the best glasses really fun. If you are looking for a great place to take care of your eyes, this is it. 
I had an eye emergency- what turned out to be an infected corneal abrasion- and not only did Optical Studio get me in right away, everyone involved in my care was incredibly kind and helpful and they quickly address the problem.
