Brad Barnett, M.D.,Ph.D.

Dr Barnett completed his medical degree, a PhD in Pharmacology, as well as an Ophthalmology residency at Johns Hopkins. After completing a fellowship in Corneal and Refractive Surgery at UC San Diego, he became a Professor of Ophthalmology in the Corneal Division at Duke University. At Duke, his primary focus was on complex anterior segment reconstruction surgeries. Deciding to focus more on refractive surgery, fittingly in 2020, Dr. Barnett joined NVISION and Sierra EyeCare Associates in 2021.

 Dr Barnett  is an anterior segment surgeon who treats patients with cataracts, glaucoma, refractive error and corneal diseases, such as dry eye syndrome. He views himself first and foremost as a partner in meeting the visual goals of each of his patients. He was attracted to ophthalmology, as people recognize their own symptoms prior to coming to visit him. This creates a unique relationship is  which patient and clinician are mutual partners in achieving health goals.
