The American Board of Ophthalmology (ABO) is a non-profit medical certifying board dedicated to serving the public by improving the quality of ophthalmic practice through a certification process that fosters excellence and encourages continuing learning. The intent of the Board's certification process is to provide assurance to the public and to the medical profession that a certified physician has successfully completed an accredited course of education in ophthalmology and an evaluation including an examination. The evaluation is designed to assess the knowledge, experience, and skill requisite to the delivery of quality patient care in ophthalmology. Ophthalmology is the branch of medicine that specializes in the study of the anatomy, physiology, and pathology of the eye as well as the diagnosis and treatment of eye disorders. The American Board of Ophthalmology is the only recognized certifying board for eye physicians and surgeons. The Board has a web site on the Internet that provides information on its mission and intent; certification applications, requirements, examinations, dates and deadlines, and renewals; and dynamic linkage to related sites on the Internet.
