Brandreth fund to upgrade slit lamps at Berkeley Optometry



Berkeley, CA-The University of California Berkeley School of Optometry has raised nearly $500,000 for the Dr. Roy Brandreth Optometry Equipment Fund, said Dennis Levi, dean of Berkeley Optometry. UC Berkeley Executive Vice Chancellor George Breslauer has committed a minimum of $600 thousand dollars in matching funds.

The fund will be used to provide new educational and patient services opportunities, and to enhance the Berkeley Optometry facilities, including the clinic and teaching labs.

Roy Brandeth, OD, is noted for his early adoption of the slit lamp biomicroscope in everyday clinical practice. While a member of the Berkeley Optometry faculty, Dr. Brandreth wrote a textbook, Clinical Slit Lamp Biomicroscopy. Appropriately, the Brandreth fund will be used to upgrade slit lamps throughout the clinics to Haag-Streit slit lamps.ODT
