In Memoriam




Dr. David Golden


The Herbert Wertheim School of Optometry & Vision Science honors the legacy of Dr. David Golden, a leader of our profession and a cherished member of the extended Berkeley community. He regularly attended the Sheldon M. Golden Conference, named in honor of his father, and he will be remembered as a great optometric colleague.

Conference Topic: Traumatic Brain Injury

It is widely recognized that mild traumatic brain injury causes oculomotor and visual-perceptual deficits. It also exacerbates underlying visual dysfunction in a majority of sufferers. Optometrists are well-positioned to help these patients resolve their symptoms and visual deficits by facilitating return to work, school, and play.

Our expert panel of speakers will provide you with practical assessment and therapeutic tools, including prescribing considerations, to enhance your care of this important population and how recent research has shaped clinical practice.

The TBI toolset shares a common set of principles with the treatment of developmental vision problems, as well as sports vision and cognitive training.
