ABCMO is the primary source for verifying an optometrist is a certified specialist in medical optometry. Since its founding in 2009, over 130 state, local and federal Joint Commission accredited medical organizations utilize ABCMO for verification an optometrist is certified as a specialist in medical optometry.
Since the number of VOC requests has continued to grow as more residency-trained medical optometrists complete their training and gain medical staff appointments at Joint Commission accredited medical organizations, group practices and clinical teaching faculty, the VOC process has been updated. It now includes more timely verifications by utilizing email verifications.
To remain a certified specialist in medical optometry an optometrist, after certification, is required by ABCMO to participate in its Maintenance of Certification (MOC) program as specified in Article 19 of ABCMO Bylaws.
