FORT MYERS, Fla. (Sept. 16, 2020) – Elmquist Eye Group is pleased to welcome Yasaira Rodriguez, M.D. to the practice, a comprehensive ophthalmologist specializing in cosmetic procedures.

Rodriguez is a caring and committed physician who strives to provide the highest quality of personalized eye care. She specializes in surgical and nonsurgical procedures that enhance and reshape structures of the face and eyelids to improve appearance and confidence.

Neurotoxin and dermal filler injections can help patients by improving the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, poor skin texture and lost facial volume. Additionally, vision impairments caused by sagging eyelids can be corrected by blepharoplasty, a type of eyelid surgery, which can enhance the position of upper eyelids.

“We are pleased to bring Dr. Rodriguez to the practice, expanding our service capacity while introducing new cosmetic procedures to meet the growing needs of our patients,” said Dr. Trevor Elmquist, founder of Elmquist Eye Group. “Preserving eyesight is the top priority, and an ophthalmologist specializing in these types of procedures can help determine the best course of treatment for your individual needs, correcting vision while helping restore a more rested and youthful appearance.”

In addition to cosmetic procedures, Rodriguez will also expand Elmquist Eye Group’s comprehensive eye care and cataracts services. Rodriguez is trained in diagnosing and managing a wide range of ophthalmic conditions, and her surgical training includes cataract and refractive surgeries, minimally invasive glaucoma surgery, laser procedures and intravitreal injections.

Rodriguez is fluent in both Spanish and English. She completed her Bachelor of Science in microbiology from Iowa State University and her Doctor of Medicine from Universidad Central del Caribe, earning magna cum laude honors. During her medical training, she was inducted by her peers into the prestigious Alpha Omega Alpha Honors Medical Society, joining an elite group of physicians. She completed her ophthalmology training at the Kresge Eye Institute in Detroit, Michigan, gaining valuable experience in medical retina, micro-invasive glaucoma surgery, cataract surgery and advanced technology intraocular lenses. Skilled in medical research and analysis, her work has been published in peer-reviewed journals.
