Why Berkeley?

Vision is one of our most valuable senses. At UC Berkeley’s Herbert Wertheim School of Optometry & Vision Science, world-renowned faculty are exploring a rich array of research questions relating to how we see and why vision fails. The answers have the potential to change lives. 

We take great pride in offering comprehensive vision care. In addition to being the premiere optometric teaching institution in the United States, we provide comprehensive eye care to the Berkeley campus and the local community. From eye exams and complete contact lens care, to pediatric optometry and the diagnosis and treatment of ocular health problems, our patients work with medical teams unsurpassed in academic and research expertise.
