He was the President of the Austin Ophthalmology Society in 2011, and is currently a member of the American Academy of Ophthalmology, the American Society of Cataract and Refractive Surgery, the American Glaucoma Society, the Texas Ophthalmological Society, and the Texas Medical Association.
In April 2009, Dr. Rhodes joined Howerton Eye Clinic in South Austin as their lead cataract, glaucoma, and LASIK surgeon.
Dr. Rhodes was an extremely busy cataract, glaucoma, and refractive surgeon in South Austin during 2009-early 2010. He left this position specifically to open Lake Travis Eye and Laser Center with the belief that the Lake Travis area could benefit greatly from a state-of-the-art ophthalmology practice specializing in cataract surgery, complete glaucoma care, and refractive surgery such as LASIK. In June 2012, Dr. Rhodes performed the first cataract surgery and implanted the first Restor lens in Lakeway at the new Lakeway Regional Medical Center.
Lake Travis Eye & Laser Center is a member of the Lake Travis Chamber of Commerce, as well as the Four Points Chamber of Commerce and is located in the beautiful Tuscan Hills Lakeside building on RR 620. Dr. Rhodes strongly believes in providing the best possible care for each patient that comes through the door. This is seen in the medical records system and diagnostic equipment that we provide:
We look forward to providing you with compassionate and cutting-edge eye care.
