Assistant Professor of Clinical Optometry
School of Optometry
Dr. Sarah Singh is an Assistant Professor of Clinical Optometry at the UC Berkeley School of Optometry & Vision Science, where she cares for pediatric patients in the Infant/Toddler Clinic and the Myopia Control Clinic. She graduated from Berkeley Optometry in 2014 and went on to pursue residency training in Pediatrics and Primary Care, also at Berkeley, where she was first exposed to myopia control under the mentorship of Dr. Maria Liu. During her residency, she became very passionate about myopia control and how treatments might be optimized for individual patients and went on to complete a Ph.D. researching some of these mechanisms in an animal model. Throughout her Ph.D. training, Dr. Singh continued to see patients in the Myopia Control Clinic at Berkeley, as well as train optometric interns and residents in myopia control techniques. Her current research focuses on the use of atropine for myopia prevention as well as understanding the epidemiology of refractive errors in children. When she’s not at work, she enjoys exploring the Bay Area with her two dogs.
