Vision therapists employed by Fellows are eligible to become Board Certified in vision development, vision therapy, and vision rehabilitation as Certified Optometric Vision Therapists (COVTs).
To be eligible for application to the COVT process, you must have experience working in a vision therapy office setting for a minimum of 2,000 hours, or 1,000 hours with possession of a relevant behavioral degree.
The process involves submitting responses to a series of Guided Study Open Book Questions on various clinical topics and successfully completing a multiple choice written examination and oral interview. Once you have applied for certification as an optometric vision therapist, you have up to four years to complete the certification process.
It is recommended you review the following materials along with the certification guide prior to completing the application for the COVT Process:
