Vision Science Students are back working in research labs since early July, 2020. The campus has announced that all previously approved hybrid courses that are not clinically related will start the semester remotely. All courses with GSI’s in the School will start remotely for both lectures and labs when didactic instruction starts on August 26, 2020. Berkeley Optometry’s clinic is open and providing eye care services. Our 3rd and 4th year OD students have returned to on-site clinical training; our research faculty continue to lead efforts to mobilize scientists around the globe in an urgent quest to find innovative ways to test and treat COVID-19; and we have developed detailed safety measures to keep our patients and our school community safe.
