Comprehensive Eye Exams For The Whole Family

Dutchess Optometry offers thorough eye exams for all ages, ensuring your vision and eye health are at their best. Our eye care professionals in Poughkeepsie and Red Hook provide detailed assessments, not just for eyewear prescriptions but also for detecting eye diseases and evaluating overall eye function.

Pediatric Eye Exams

We recommend regular eye exams for children starting at six months, at age 3, and before school to identify and address any vision problems early on.

Adult Eye Care

Adults, especially those with eyewear needs or health conditions like diabetes, should have regular eye exams. After 40, frequent checks are crucial for monitoring age-related eye conditions.

What to Expect During a Comprehensive Eye Exam:

  • Medical History Review: Understanding your health history and any vision problems.
  • Visual Acuity Test: Assessing how clearly each eye can see.
  • Refraction Test: Determining the correct lens power needed to compensate for any refractive error (nearsightedness, farsightedness, or astigmatism).
  • Slit-Lamp Examination: Examining the structures of your eye under high magnification.
  • Eye Pressure Measurement (Tonometry): Checking for glaucoma by measuring the pressure inside your eyes.
  • Dilation (Optional): Providing a better view of the internal structures of your eye.
  • Additional Vision Tests: Assessing depth perception, color vision, peripheral vision, and the coordination and movement of the eyes.
