How do I add a CAQ to my Board Certification?

Optometrists seeking a CAQ must demonstrate advanced knowledge and experience in a chosen area which is above and beyond what is required for board certification.  All CAQ candidates must be Board Certified by the American Board of Optometry in good standing, obtain 100 qualification points and pass a specialty assessment. Successful candidates will be awarded the CAQ credential upon passing the assessment and be enrolled in a focused MOC path beginning the following year.
