NCLE Examination - OptiCon East March 2020

To earn your NCLE basic certification, you need to achieve a passing score on an examination. The exam consists of questions on the skills and knowledge required for competency in ophthalmic dispensing. The CLRE  exam is psychometrically developed by impartial Subject Matter Experts within the field of Contact Lens Fitting. After test specifications are created (based on the Job Analysis), the exams are written by groups of impartial Certified Contact Lens Fitters. The questions are then reviewed by the testing service specialists for proper testing principles and rules of grammar and style. Questions are created to test a candidate's ability to recall knowledge and to apply that knowledge to specific dispensing functions.

Exams are given in English and Spanish, via computer and each exam is 2 hours long. You must be at least 18 years old, and have a high school graduate or have earned a GED or the equivalent in order to take the exams.

Unfortunately, because OptiCon @ Vision Expo East was cancelled, exam registrations will no longer be available for March 29th.  We do apologize for the inconvenience.
