He was the son of Walter Berry of Glenstriven FRSE (d.1904), the Danish Consul General for Scotland. He was educated at Marlborough College in Wiltshire before studying Medicine at Edinburgh University.
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. In 1889, Berry published a description of a case of Treacher Collins syndrome (sometimes called Berry-Treacher Collins syndrome).
In the First World War he was in charge of Optical Surgery in the 2nd Scottish General Hospital (now the Edinburgh Western General).
