Sir George Andreas Berry (6 October 1853 – 18 June 1940)[1] was a Scottish Unionist politician.

He was elected as Member of Parliament MP for the Combined Scottish Universities at the 1922 general election,[2] and held the seat until he stood down at the 1931 general election.[2]

He was a famous ophthalmologist and wrote a textbook Diseases of the Eye (1893) that was widely used in the U.K. and U.S.A.[3] In 1889, Berry published a description of a case of Treacher Collins syndrome (sometimes called Berry-Treacher Collins syndrome).[4]
