Our Vision, Our Future
The Our Vision, Our Future campaign is the final $25 million component of the $100 million campaign initiated by the transformational $50 million gift from the Wertheim Family Foundation. Our campaign is an investment that will fulfill our bold vision for a forward-thinking transformation in the teaching and training of those who deliver vision care and push the boundaries of discovery and innovation.
The Herbert Wertheim School of Optometry & Vision Science is uniquely positioned to transform optometry and vision science. Our potential to drive research innovation and discovery is far-reaching. Our primary care clinics and our wide-range of specialty clinics, which address areas such as myopia control, medical optometry, specialty contact lenses, pediatrics, sports vision, traumatic brain injury, low vision, vision therapy, and neurorehabilitation, will continue to develop and provide outstanding clinical care.Focus Areas
