Our Story

Since our inception in 2001, Rhinebeck Eye Care has been highly regarded throughout our beautiful Hudson Valley region as a leader in optometry. We offer patients from Rhinebeck, Hudson, and our surrounding communities the latest and greatest vision care products, along with highly personalized optometric services. We believe that when you see the world more clearly, you can live life more fully - and we’re here to do all we can to make that possible.


Our advanced, cutting-edge, state-of-the-art diagnostic technology allows us to diagnose, manage, and/or treat just about any eye condition out there. As you know, it is critically important that you make vision care part of your overall self-care plan; it helps ensure that diseases like glaucoma, the “sneak thief of sight”, are caught before they catch up to you. We can also uncover other health issues using our top-notch equipment, not to mention the ability to provide you with the most suitable lenses so that you can experience the acuity you deserve. Even if you feel your vision is clear and that your eyes are in good health, an annual exam will help protect you from future challenges.

At Rhinebeck Eye Care and Hudson Vision Source, you will experience the blend of compassion and expertise that has our patients returning year after year, generation after generation. Whether your eye appointment is focused on preventative care - or you need help resolving an injury or you’re looking to manage any of the wide array of eye diseases, conditions, and problems, we are here for you!
