Wertheim Foundation pledges $50 million to optometry

The Dr. Herbert and Nicole Wertheim Family Foundation has pledged a historic $50 million to the School of Optometry, the largest gift ever to be received by an optometry school in the country. This transformational commitment constitutes the lead gift for a 10-year, $100 million investment that will expand the school’s ability to train optometric physicians and educators to lead in the spectrum of primary and preventative health care.
