About UCSF Optometry
Optometry Service at UCSF is an integral component of the department of Ophthalmology. Optometry clinics serve as a gateway into practice for the newly referred patients. Optometrists at UCSF practice to the full scope of their license. In addition, our optometrists co-manage patients with sub-specialists in glaucoma, pediatrics, cornea, oculoplastics, retina, and comprehensive ophthalmology. Our patient population is diverse, reflecting the demographic makeup of the Bay Area. UCSF Medical Center clinics as well as community health networks serve as our primary referral base. As a result, patients present with a wide range of ocular and systemic health conditions. UCSF Optometry is uniquely positioned to provide rich clinical education experience to our students and residents.
