NYSSO only approves continuing education courses that provide education and training specific to the profession of ophthalmic dispensing, including business management courses. Course material should be generic in nature and not intended to be a promotional opportunity for a specific product and/or service. Specific products and/or services may be mentioned if comparable products and/or services from at least two other manufactures are reviewed.

NYSSO does allow presentations to be product specific for continuing education credit if the product is brand new.
