Biographical narrative

Dr. Barbara Fink is an Associate Professor of Optometry and Vision Science at The Ohio State University College of Optometry. Her research interests include corneal and tear physiology, contact lens design, and keratoconus. Her studies have looked at contact lens designs and materials and their effects on ocular physiology through the measurement of corneal oxygen uptake rates. From 1995 until 2004, she was principal investigator for The Ohio State University CLEK Clinic, part of an NlH-sponsored, multi-center study on keratoconus.

She has been chair of the Diversity Enhancement Committee (formerly the Affirmative Action Committee) of the College of Optometry since 1987. She has been a Diplomate of the Cornea, Contact Lenses, and Refractive Technologies section of the American Academy of Optometry since 1999. She teaches courses in ocular physiology and is an attending in the Contact Lens Service.

She did her undergraduate work at the University of Notre Dame, earned her O.D. degree from Indiana University in 1981, and earned her master’s and Ph.D. degrees in physiological optics from The Ohio State University under the mentorship of Dr. Richard M. Hill in 1985 and 1987, respectively. Between 1981 and 1984, she served as assistant professor at Inter American University of Puerto Rico School of Optometry, where she was Director of the Contact Lens Clinic.
