The New ABO Website

October 4, 2012

Welcome to our new website! We’ve updated pages and features to provide a better experience for Diplomates, Active Candidates and others interested in board certification.

The new website has a “Find a Board Certified Optometrist” option for those wishing to locate an ABO Diplomate.  However, at this time, this functionality is still in testing, so you may experience some issues. We  hope to have this ready by mid-October.

The ABO Bylaws and Examination Candidate Guide are now available to read online and download as a pdf.

Links to our social media websites, such as Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn, are also on every page so that you can follow us and keep up with what’s going on at the ABO. A Frequently Asked Questions page is available for our visitors to address the most common questions we receive.

Don’t forget to stop by our blog every once in a while to read about the latest ABO news, our board certification exam, Maintenance of Certification and more.

Feel free to explore the new website. If you have any questions, please contact our office.



Check Board Certification Status

By going through the voluntary process of becoming board certified, our Diplomates demonstrate competence beyond entry level.
