Optometry at UC Berkeley


Open to all, the goal of Berkeley Optometry’s Opto-Camp is to provide pre-health science/pre-optometry majors, especially those who are underrepresented in the profession and/or first-generation college students, with in-depth information about Optometry as a career track and to prepare attendees to be successful applicants to optometry school.

Pre-Optometry Clubs

Many colleges have pre-optometry clubs for students and individuals that are interested in pursuing a career in the field of optometry.

At Berkeley, the Foresight pre-optometry club offers interested students opportunities to sign up for a mentor, attend events with current optometry students, and to shadow current students in classes and clinics.
