In addition to patient care, Karth is active in health tech, teleophthalmology, AI, and medical devices.

A regular contributor to many popular and peer-reviewed publications who presents at national and international events, Karth is also one of ophthalmology’s most active proponents of physicians in social media.

A nominator said: “Peter is tremendously dedicated to finding novel solutions to issues in the field of ophthalmology – I worked with him on developing a novel mobile app for vision testing and monitoring, which proactively detects the progression of retinal diseases. His dedication and contributions to the technological advances in this field, both with his work in industry and academia, make him a clear rising star 
in ophthalmology.”
