American Board of Ophthalmology

January 14, 2020

Overview

The American Board of Ophthalmology (ABO) is a non-profit organization that certifies ophthalmologists (eye doctors and surgeons) in the United States. The criteria includes completing an accredited ophthalmic residency training program and demonstrating a level of knowledge, skills, and experience in ophthalmology. The organization does not give medical advice or recommend doctors

 

Description

The ABO website is not a resource for people considering eye surgery but is solely concerned with certification of eye specialists. The sections are divided into resources for doctors and patients. For patients, the main feature is the ability to verify if a physician is certified by the group.

 

Verify a Physician

On the ABO website, users can enter in the name of an eye specialist to see if the physician is certified by the board. Users can find the physician either based on name or location. Users can also learn more about the certification requirements and what each of the certifications mean to make an informed decision.
