Doctor Vaccinations Underway
We are pleased to announce that our clinical faculty and students have been receiving their COVID-19 vaccinations! The campus has allocated enough vaccine for all health care workers — including those in our clinics — and a successful rollout has begun! We’re celebrating with them and applaud our entire optometric community for continuing to provide safe eye care to our patients!
UC Berkeley Optometry remains open and ready to care for you and your family. This is consistent with local and state Public Health guidelines. All visits are by appointment only.
If you have an appointment already scheduled, you do not need to confirm your appointment or reschedule. We are expecting you and have comprehensive safety protocols in place. Your eye health is essential. If you are experiencing an eye related problem, vision changes or need to be seen for an ongoing eye condition, please don’t delay in seeking care.
We look forward to seeing you and thank you for entrusting your eye care to Berkeley Optometry.
Health and Safety Measures
For the health and safety of our patients, doctors and staff, we have implemented the following safety measures.
- Face coverings are required for all who enter the clinic and must be worn during the entire visit.
- Everyone entering will be required to sanitize their hands upon entering and will be required to wash and or sanitize their hands multiple times during their visit.
- All persons entering the clinic will have their health screened by being asked a series of questions and by having their temperature taken with a touch-less thermometer.
- All persons must follow social distancing guidelines posted throughout the clinic.
To expedite the health screening that occurs on the day of your appointment, before you enter the clinic for your appointment, please fill out the Berkeley Campus Symptom Screener at the URL below and be ready to present the certificate of completion and have your touchless temperature taken when you arrive. If you do not work or study at UC Berkeley be sure to answer “No” to the second question.
