Dr. Heather Gauger O.D


Dr. Heather Gauger attended the University of Central Florida and received her Doctorate of Optometry from Nova Southeastern University College of Optometry in 2017. Due to her particular interest in diseases of the eye, Dr. Gauger pursued a residency specializing in Ocular Disease, which she completed in 2018. During that time, she was able to work alongside multiple specialists in South Florida where she further developed a passion for glaucoma, diabetic retinopathy, and other retinal conditions.

Dr. Gauger provides medical evaluations as well as routine vision examinations. She strives to provide the best care for her patients by utilizing her extensive knowledge of disease partnered with her gentle demeanor and genuine concern for her patients. She is a member of multiple optometric associations, including the American Academy of Optometry in which she is currently pursuing a Fellowship.

Dr. Gauger is thrilled to join the Family Vision Center team and as a Brevard County native, she is very happy to be back in her hometown. Dr. Gauger is engaged to be married next year to her fiancé Adam and enjoys spending time with family, friends, and cat Charlie.
