In recognition of professional excellence, the Commission of Paraoptometric Certification announced that Brenda Kadrmas and Mersades Lodge have successfully completed the first level of its national paraoptometric certification program and have earned the title of certified paraoptometric.

Kadrmas and Lodge have proven the level of required knowledge of optometric practice in the areas of anatomy of the eye, eye examinations, reactive status, ophthalmic prescription, ophthalmic lenses, ophthalmic dispensing, contact lenses, eye disorders and terminology.

The Certified Paraoptometric Examination is prepared and administered by the Commission on Paraoptometric Certification. The purpose of the exam is to assure a level of knowledge to perform the function of a certified paraoptometric. People who successfully pass the CPO certification exam have met the requirements of work and school experience and are required to attain continuing professional development to maintain their certification.

The Paraoptometric certification program is the only professional certification for paraoptometrics that is recognized worldwide. The CPO, CPOA, and CPOT exams are accredited by the National Commission for Certifying Agencies. The NCCA's Standards for the Accreditation of Certification Programs were the first standards for professional certification programs developed by the industry.

Kadrmas and Lodge are employed by Drs. Safley, Obie and Stremcha at Havre Optometric Clinic.
