We set the standards and verify that a practitioner has met the rigorous requirements for initial registration and maintenance of registration for the Optometry Fellowship (FCCSO) and Optometry Specialist (CCSO(S)) titles.
We offer a referral service for optometrists, other health care practitioners and the general public who require the assistance of an optometrist who specializes in a specific area of practice. Practitioners who have met the rigorous requirements for Fellowship or Specialty designations are listed on our website in their specific area of expertise.
We encourage and enable life-long learning, vision care research and the aspiration to improve patient outcomes and enrich patient experiences.
We offer peer reviewed and evidence-based Standards of Care and Health Policy Papers on vision-care and health-care issues that are based on the most recent optometric and medical research.
We offer a Speaker’s Bureau of practitioners who have earned a designation in a specific or specialized area of practice.
