Meet Dr. Narain

Meet Dr. Keshav Narain, MD

Keshav Narain was born in New Delhi, India where he lived for the first two years of his life and then moved to San Diego, CA.

He completed undergraduate studies at the University of California at Berkeley where he received several awards. He graduated from medical school at the George Washington University School of Medicine where he developed an interest in ophthalmology. He then entered ophthalmology residency at the distinguished New Jersey Eye Institute at the New Jersey Medical School where he completed over 250 diverse ophthalmic procedures as primary surgeon. These cases included complicated trauma, gunshot wounds, and motor vehicle injuries, for which Newark had become notorious for, as well as the routine cases familiar to most community-based eye specialists.

Dr. Narain also had the opportunity to attend an Operation Orbis mission in Calcutta where he met and spoke with Mother Theresa.

After four years of residency and one year of internship in New Jersey, Dr. Narain began a two-year fellowship in vitreoretinal diseases and surgery at the University of California at Irvine with Dr. Baruch Kuppermann. There, he was not only the primary surgeon but also taught general ophthalmology and ophthalmic surgery to residents. He also wrote a book chapter on a text covering ocular trauma surgery. In 1999 he became a Diplomat of the American Board of Ophthalmology and re-certified with the ABO in 2008.

Prior to the establishment of South Bay Retina, Dr. Narain practiced in a diversity of medical settings. He served as a vitreoretinal consultant to the ophthalmology department at Kaiser Bellflower and the Orange County Department of Health. Later, he joined a private retinal practice in San Jose where he worked for over two years. He completed many complex surgeries there, generated a strong patient following, updated many aspects of the practice, and worked with local hospitals to help update to the latest equipment and techniques. He left that practice in October of 2000 to create South Bay Retina.

Dr. Narain maintains privileges at Good Samaritan Hospital, El Camino Hospital, and El Camino Surgery Center.

Dr. Narain is an avid reader and keeps current with medical literature. Because of his experience and knowledge in the field, his expertise is sought after by other ophthalmologists, medical doctors in other specialties, optometrists, and other professionals frequently. Dr. Narain is also asked to provide expert witness testimony and consultation for legal cases.

    I was able to get an appointment the next day which was reassuring as it turned out I had a small retinal tear. All of my questions were answered and laser surgery was performed in the office. No pain, excellent explanations, great visit.
