National Board of Examiners in Optometry
Advanced Competency in Medical Optometry
200 S. College Street, #2010 Charlotte NC 28202
In 2005, the National Board of Examiners in Optometry offered ACMO as the first examination to assess advanced competence in medical optometry, which was developed at the request of the National Association of VA Optometrists (NAVAO www.navao.org). Taking the ACMO examination provides an opportunity for Doctors of Optometry to achieve the same formal recognition and status that other VA health care professionals receive following completion of residency programs.
