Tara Barth, O.D.

Professional Bio

Dr. Barth joined Southwest Eye Care in October 2020, making her the practice's eleventh partner. She earned her B.S. in Biology at University of St. Mary, graduating Cum Laude, and doctorate in Optometry at Michigan College of Optometry. She also holds an Associate's degree in Paramedicine from Bismarck State College.

Since 2009, Dr. Barth has practiced Optometry, and finds great importance to listen to what concerns patients have about their vision and eye health, so that she may provide proper education for each individual patient.  She cherishes giving a patient the ability to see again, such as a child with their first pair of glasses or a keratoconus patient receiving their first scleral lens.

Dr. Barth shares her time between Southwest Eye Care, and Minnesota Eye Consultants.

Why I'm an Optometrist 

I always knew I wanted to choose a career in healthcare and during my paramedic training I was able to explore many different aspects of medicine. The constantly advancing field of optometry allowed me to continue to grow and learn as a practitioner as well as have a balanced work-family life.

Every patient of mine is cared for the same way I would care for any one of my family members.
