Hi, I am Alex.
I am like you. I am an ophthalmic assistant. I work in a clinic and assist doctors (both optometrists and ophthalmologist) in their day to day tasks. So, I know what you are going through and how much of a learning curve is involved in ophthalmology.
I don’t have advanced knowledge of the eye. I try to learn every day and post things that I think are important to passing the COA.
I had to work hard and study to pass the COA. I am not one of those guys that can wake up one morning decide to take a test and pass flying colors. Hopefully I can share something with you that will help you with your preparation to become a COA. Everything that I post is information that I wish I had while I was preparing.
I AM a COA (Certified Ophthalmic Assistant). I know that it is difficult to find time to study. That time can become exponentially harder to find with a family to provide for. I know that it is hard, but if I can do it you can do it to!
Why Did I Create This Website?
Currently the books that are offered to those trying to pursue their COA are low-yeild. Low-yeild means that they are filled with loads of information, and by loads I mean way more than what is necessary to pass this test. I want to create something that is high-yeild. This means that only necessary information is used. This cuts out the fluff and gives you exactly what you need to know.
The best way to contact me is by messaging me on Facebook:
You can also send me an email by webmail, but I tend to check Facebook more often than email:
