Dr. Wayne Schrader has been practicing optometry in Davis for over 30 years. Born in Honolulu, Hawaii and reared in California, Dr. Schrader graduated from Aragon High School in San Mateo. He then attended the University of California, Davis, where he graduated with a degree in Zoology in 1969. Dr. Schrader then continued his studies at the University of California, Berkeley School of Optometry, receiving his Doctorate of Optometry in 1974. Upon graduating, he served as a resident and clinical instructor at the University of Waterloo School of Optometry in Waterloo, Ontario, Canada specializing in binocular vision and contact lenses.
In 1975, Dr. Schrader returned to Davis where he joined the practice of Drs. William Harrison and Victor Lim. Today, after 30 years, he continues the practice under his name. He is a member of the American Optometric Association, the California Optometric Association and the Sacramento Valley Optometric Association.
Outside of his practice, Dr. Schrader believes in giving back to the community. He has been a long-time member of the U.C. Davis Cal Aggie Alumni Association, serving on its Board of Directors for two years. He has also been a long-time member of the Cal Aggie Booster Club, a support group for U. C. Davis Athletics. He served as the club president for two years.
He has been a member of the Davis Rotary Club since 1985, serving as President in 1994-95. He helped start and continues to run the Rotary Club's Vision Project which is designed to provide eye care for school children who otherwise could not afford it. He has also been active in the Rotary International Youth Exchange Program, serving as a counselor to high school aged students who come from other countries to spend a year in the United States.
He has also served on the Board of Directors for the Davis School Arts Foundation and the International House.
Dr. Schrader is very grateful that he has had the opportunity to provide vision care to the Davis and surrounding communities.
