ABO announces new diplomates

February 23, 2012

 The American Board of Optometry (ABO) released the results of its Nov. 28 – Dec. 11, 2011, Board Certification Examination.

A total of 276 doctors (94.8 percent) successfully passed the exam, becoming Diplomates of the American Board of Optometry.

The Diplomates, from 41 states, will be added to the listing of board-certified optometrists on the ABO Web site (www.americanboardofoptometry.org).

“The American Board of Optometry congratulates this group of optometrists who have completed the comprehensive examination and started their 10-year maintenance cycle, demonstrating their commitment to lifelong learning,” said Paul C. Ajamian, O.D., who chairs the ABO board. “As the list of Active Candidates continues to grow, we expect many more doctors to become Diplomates in the coming year, as the expiration of the initial Phase-In Rules approaches.”

Registration is open for the next ABO examination, scheduled for July 15-31, 2012, at Prometric Test Centers worldwide.
