Dr. Rodriguez’a skilled associates, including Kate Wagner, OD, partner, and Nina Burt, OD, provide a complete range of eye care services and have the expertise to care for anyone in your family, from children to seniors, in a comfortable and caring setting.
Optometrists, or Doctors of Optometry, are designated by the initials “OD” following their names. Most people receive their primary eye care from their local Doctor of Optometry, and optometrists are often the first to spot problems because our eyes are the windows to our overall health.
Drs. Wagner and Burt are optometrists who are board certified by the State of Florida and the National Board of Optometry. They perform comprehensive eye examinations and vision tests, diagnose and treat eye diseases, such as cataracts and glaucoma, identify health problems that can be detected in the eyes (i.e., diabetes and high blood pressure), and prescribe and dispense glasses and contact lenses.
Wide Range of Services
Our services include (but are not limited to):
Comprehensive Eye Exams (for ages 5 and up) – Many eye and vision problems have no symptoms, so comprehensive eye exams are an important part of maintaining healthy vision. Even if you think your eyes are healthy, they are important for detecting and treating problems before they lead to vision loss.
Diabetic Eye Exams: People with diabetes are 25 times more likely than non-diabetics to lose their good vision. Elmquist Eye Group performs thorough retinal exams through dilated pupils to check for any complications of diabetes, such as diabetic retinopathy.
Glaucoma Evaluation & Treatment: When detected and treated at an early stage, glaucoma can be controlled. We measure your internal eye pressure and perform a detailed scan of the retina for signs of the disease.
Dry Eye Diagnosis & Treatment: When the surface of your eye lacks sufficient lubrication, you may have dry eye syndrome. This can cause minor irritations, an inability to wear contact lenses, and an increased risk of inflammation and eye infections.
Cataract Evaluation & Surgery: If the natural lens of the eye becomes cloudy and prevents you from seeing clearly, it can be replaced with an artificial lens. Dr. Rodriguez offers state-of-the-art refractive cataract surgery to qualified patients.
LASIK Evaluation & Surgery: LASIK is one of several options that can reduce or eliminate your dependence on glasses or contacts. We never compromise on safety; we utilize the safest, most advanced technologies and equipment to ensure that we deliver the best possible results.
Full Service Optical: In our full-service Optical Boutique you’ll find high-quality frames and lenses in the latest styles to fit your lifestyle and budget, as well as a wide selection of contact lenses that can be reordered online and delivered to your home.
