About Dr. Rodgers:

He studied medicine at London University in England and specialised in ophthalmology at the University of Toronto. Dr. Rodgers became American board certified in 1982, a Fellow of The Royal College of Surgeons [Canada] and a Felllow of The Royal College of Surgeons [UK] in 1988.

On returning to The Bahamas in 1984, Dr. Rodgers was appointed to the post of Chief of Ophthalmology at The Princess Margaret Hospital and entered private practice the same year. Dr. Rodgers has always had a keen interest in the treatment of presbyopia having had experience with the Summit holmium laser and later on with laser presbyopia surgery. Dr. Rodgers also worked closely with the late Dr. Alberto Osio in Mexico City, where one of the first successful protocols was developed for the treatment of presbyopia utilizing the excimer laser as well as theories pertaining to pseudoaccommodation.

Dr. Rodgers established the first outpatient ophthalmic clinic in The Bahamas in 2000 where the first excimer laser surgery in The Bahamas was performed. The Vision Rejuvenation® Center is now part of Dr. Rodgers’ clinical and optical practice which is located in The Harbour Bay Shopping Center in Nassau, Bahamas.
