* Final date and schedule to be announced pending state board decision

Welcome to our Glaucoma and Orals Certification Course webinar series offering 20 hours clinical education & 40 hours Didactic education beginning in June 2021. Virtual instructor-led and recorded courses available via LMS.

The Department of Public Health (DPH), the Department of Professional Licensure (DPL) and State Board are working on the specifics of setting up another class of optometry license, deciding the rules and format of the certification education, working with MassHealth, etc.

We will be providing up to date information on the certification process and the course once we have all the necessary information from the Board of Registration in Optometry. You will have full details soon.

Please be aware. The new law is very specific. The MSO is the ONLY entity allowed to administer the Certification Education.

Wording of the law:
(an applicant) must furnish to the board of registration in optometry evidence of the satisfactory completion of 40 hours of didactic education and 20 hours of supervised clinical education relating to the use and prescription of therapeutic pharmaceutical agents under section 66C; provided, however, that such education shall: (A) be administered by the Massachusetts Society of Optometrists, Inc.; (B) be accredited by a college of optometry or medicine; and (C) meet the guidelines and requirements of the board of registration in optometry.
