Berkeley Optometry Program Ranked #1 in Research

In an analysis published in the journal Clinical and Experimental Optometry, the Herbert Wertheim School of Optometry & Vision Science is the number one school in the world in optometry led research.

While there is no official ranking of optometry schools, the authors state that, “one characteristic of optometry schools that can be measured objectively is research excellence,” and that, “research provides the foundations that underpin optometric education and the evidence-based clinical practice of optometry.” The authors conclude that, “the top ranked optometry school in the world, in terms of excellence in research undertaken by optometrists who currently or have previously worked there, is the University of California, Berkeley, USA.”
