Our collaboration with our Affinity Partners has made possible several opportunities to benefit both your practice and COVD as a whole.
For optometrists who provide care or instruction in the area of developmental and behavioral vision care and vision therapy. These members are featured on our Locate a Doctor tool so patients in their area can find them more easily. New Associate members must have completed at least 10 hours of relevant CE in the last year.
For all individuals, including optometrists not currently in practice, who are interested in the advancement of the functional and developmental aspects of vision. This membership is also a good choice for those optometrists who are new to vision therapy, looking to learn more about it before adding it to their practice, or coming back to it after years away from the field.
