Your Learning Plan page has a new look! When logging into Learning Builder, you may notice that your Learning Plans page has a new look. Learning Builder recently went through a system upgrade and now features a Learning Plan page that makes it easier to locate payment information for MOC fees and better organizes the requirements section for MOC. If you have any issues navigating the new Learning Plan pages, please contact our office at [email protected] for assistance.

Did you miss our August 10th webinar?  Dr. Cheryl Chapman presented an outstanding webinar on Myopia Management on Wednesday, August 10. If you missed it or were unable to make it, the webinar is now available on our website at Mark your calendars now for our next webinar, Innovations in Presbyopia, presented by Dr. Cecelia Koetting on Wednesday, December 7, 2022.  This webinar will revisit an old topic, focusing on new innovations in treatment that are available both surgically and topically. How do we really define presbyopia and how do these new options fit in with our tried and true? And how do we discuss these with our patients?

Annual MOC fee will increase slightly in 2023. ABO’s annual MOC fee, which covers Learning Builder, the ABO website, system maintenance and development of educational modules, webinars and CAP assessments, has not increased in 5 years. The 2023 MOC fee will be $250, a $25 increase. ABO works diligently to keep costs as low as possible for Diplomates.
