Meet The Doctor

Dr Robert Barnes has been in practice in the local area for 24 years. He is a graduate of The Pennsylvania State University and attended optometry school at Nova-Southeastern University . His practice has been more heavily weighted towards specialty contact lens fits, Dry Eye and Allergy treatment and is also very active in the co-management of refractive surgery patients. He is one of the few doctors in the Atlanta area that is fitting Scleral Rigid Gas permeable lenses and is having great success with them. They are usually the best option for patients whose next step is corneal transplant surgery due to keratoconus. Dr Barnes is an ongoing member of the Georgia Optometric Association. He has been a member of the Contact Lens section of the AOA for 24 years.

Dr Barnes is certified by the State of Georgia Board of Examiners in Optometry and also by the International Association of Boards of Examiners in Optometry in the Treatment and Management of Ocular Disease. He has completed additional training in Corneal Refractive Therapy.

Dr Barnes enjoys spending his free time with his wife, 4 children and German Shepherd.  When time allows, he enjoys riding his motorcycle in the north Georgia mountains and scuba diving.  Following the Nittany Lions keeps him busy in the fall. He is also studying Yoshukai Karate. Osu!!
