Todd A. Robert, OD
“I have always been interested in healthcare and education (my parents were teachers). Within our practice, I am able to pursue both passions. It is a privilege to share time with patients, helping them achieve their best vision and educating them on how to preserve their precious gift of sight.”
Dr. Robert received his doctorate in 1985 from the University of Houston, College of Optometry. Upon graduation, he entered private practice with Dr. Robert Powell and Eye Care Associates, becoming a partner at Eye Care Associates from 1988 through 2014. In 2014, Dr. Robert was invited to join Vision Source, North America’s premier network of private practice optometrists, and founded Midwest Eye, a state of the art practice located at 2600 Warrenville Road in Downers Grove.
Dr. Robert’s full scope care includes patients of all ages. Dr. Robert also enjoys fitting contact lenses and is certified in fitting Ortho-K lenses, a specialty lens that can slow the progression of nearsightedness. He is a member of the American Optometric Association, the American Optometric Association Contact Lens Section, the Illinois Optometric Association, West Suburban Optometric Society and the Orthokeratology Academy of America.
For one week, each January, Dr. Robert joins World Gospel Outreach to provide eye care and eyewear to the people in Honduras. “These mission trips have been such a rewarding experience for myself and several of my family members who have joined me. We love to see the smiles on the faces of our patients both here and in Honduras!”
Dr. Robert and his wife Deneen, live in Naperville with their 5 children. When he is away from the office, he enjoys spending time with his family, coaching the kids, biking, camping, waterskiing, and listening to music.
