Gary Barth 2.jpg

I attended Williams College and USC Medical School. My ophthalmic residency was at the University of Oregon Health Science Center. My Cornea and External Disease Fellowship was at the Proctor Foundation/UCSF Medical School. I am board certified by the American Board of Ophthalmology.

Professional Focus

My daily focus is diseases and surgery of the cornea and external eye as well as cataract surgery. I started the Eye Bank of Sonoma and was the Medical Director for seven years. I also was privileged to be the co-founder and ongoing Medical Director of the region’s busiest ocular surgery center of excellence, the 4th Street Laser & Surgery Center where our surgeons perform 2,000 ocular procedures a year.

Personal Interests

I have been extremely fortunate to become involved in ophthalmic charity work in India, Nepal, Myanmar, and Cambodia. I have served as a trustee of the Seva Foundation and The PRASAD Project. I have also spearheaded a national award-winning pterygium surgery charity event for uninsured laborers and vineyard workers here in Sonoma County. Our staff, surgery center, and charity partner Operation Access have twice been the recipient of the USA Today/Newman’s Own Award and their national “All-Star Award” for charity work on National Make A Difference Day.
