Dr. Jennifer Steckenrider joined the professional eye care team of Southern Dutchess Eye Care in August 2020. Dr. Steckenrider graduated first in her class from Indiana University School of Optometry, and earned numerous awards for her academics, service and leadership. She received her Bachelor of Arts in Biology/Pre-Medicine from Taylor University, Indiana.
“Dr. Steckenrider is clinically excellent and exceptionally bright and shares our ‘patient first’ philosophy,” explains practice director Dr. Brian Powell. “She’s been a welcome addition to our eye care team.”
She chose to bring her skill set to Southern Dutchess Eye Care because of the trusted relationships the practice has with its patients, and the ability to provide the highest standard of full-scope eye care. “I have access to state-of-the-art equipment that allows me to provide services other practices may not be able to, from managing certain ocular diseases to fitting specialty contact lenses like orthokeratology,” she explains. “The practice also has a strong pediatric practice, which I am anxious to build upon. I see a real need in growing awareness for the importance of yearly eye examinations for children.”
