Dr. Matt Barber
Dr. Matthew G. Barber began seeing patients at Chroma in September of 2001. For almost two decades, Dr. Barber has worked diligently to provide cutting edge eye care to the people of Fort Worth and its surrounding areas while providing a warm and friendly environment for his patients. He wanted to provide the people of Fort Worth something unique and special and Chroma was born.
Dr. Barber attended Oklahoma State University and was given the distinction of one of OSU’s “Top Ten Freshman” men. He served on the President’s Leadership Council, Oklahoma State Spirit Group, and was a member of the Sigma Nu Fraternity. Dr. Barber received his Doctorate in Optometry from Northeastern State University and graduated with honors while earning his bachelor’s degree in Vision Science during his time at NSU.
Prior to taking over Texas State Optical, one of Fort Worth’s oldest and most respected eyecare practices, Dr. Barber specialized in ocular disease at Young Eye Institute in Lawton, Oklahoma, as well as Executive Director of American Laser Vision here in Fort Worth.
Dr. Barber specializes in understanding how the human eye works, as well as diseases and conditions that affect your vision—many of which do not always have obvious symptoms. Dr. Barber knows how age and risk factors affect vision over time for the young and old, and he understands the benefits and features of corrective lenses, both as eyeglass lenses and contact lenses.
Dr. Barber takes the time to listen to your concerns, to educate and explain the results of your eye exam, and to describe your options – while taking into consideration your eye care needs. Because maintaining good eye health is an ongoing partnership, we encourage you to ask questions and share your health information, which could be vital to monitoring, diagnosing and treating potential vision problems.
One of Dr. Barber’s true passions is spending time with his wife and three children. However, he also considers his patients “family,” and enjoys discussing sports, life lessons, and gathering parenting advice along the way.
We hope that you choose Chroma for your eye care needs, and Dr. Barber truly believes that you will enjoy being part of the Chroma Family.
