Get Prepared for the Certified Ophthalmic Medical Technologist Certification Exam

This prep course gives you all the study materials needed to pass the COMT certification exam that is administered by JCAHPO.

Now with extended access (9 months) for the same $160 fee (includes 12 JCAHPO approved CE credits).

Notice: The COMT® Prep Course is not intended for the general public.  You must be sponsored by an eye doctor in order to take the COMT® certification examination. For more information on a career in ophthalmology, click here.

Update on the 2020 Exam Changes:

JCAHPO has once again made changes to the exam content areas for 2020 and beyond. New content has been added, and some content has been taken away. Also, the number of exam questions as a percentage has changed for many content areas. We have made changes to each prep course accordingly. This is the third content area revamp JCAHPO has made in the past four years. This is a major advantage of using eyetec.net prep courses. Text books, flash cards, and brand x exam practice tests do not have this flexiblity that gives you an added advantage.


  "I just wanted to tell you that I passed my written COMT exam this morning.
Thank you so much for taking the time to put together such an accurate prep course. It was very helpful. I would recommend your courses to everyone!!" PA COT

Get up to 12 group A CE credits while you study for the exam.  

Here's how it works:  After purchasing the exam prep course, you will email to me which of the CEC courses from the catalog that you want CE credit for and I will sign you up for the CE credit post-tests.  All CEC courses are relevant to exam content, so you are not doing any "extra" reading that is not related to the exam.

I don't need to be convinced, just sign me up!   (register/login here)

Review course or prep course?

A review course lasts several hours and is designed to give you an overview of the exam material.  A comprehensive prep course takes many hours to complete and it gives you in-depth discussions of all exam content areas.  This course is a comprehensive prep course.  Take a review course if you already have a complete knowledge of the exam material.  Take a comprehensive prep course if you want to get complete coverage of the exam material.

Save time, money and effort: 

With the COMT® Exam Prep Course, all of the research and organization regarding study materials has been done for you. There is no need to purchase any other study materials. For a modest fee, you will be able to efficiently use your available study time.


   "I just wanted to let you know that this morning I took AND passed the written portion of the COMT exam. I know that I could have not passed without the fantastic help of your study courses! I found your site while preparing for the COT and was successful at that time as well.
Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!" SQ

Gain confidence with a proven study method 

The success of the eyetec.net prep course design is confirmed by a study1 conducted at Purdue University. The study compared the following groups:

1. Group one read the study material several times over, similar to cramming for an exam.
2. Group two read the study material and then drew diagrams of what they had studied.
3. Group three read the study material and then immediately took a test that quizzed them on the study material.

The group three students retained about 50% more of the information when tested a week later, compared to the other groups.

Gain confidence in your ability to pass the certification exam.  The COMT® Exam Prep Course includes a database of over 2500 exam practice questions.  All study material is followed up with quizzes designed to test your knowledge of the content, and to help you remember the material. 

Assessment quizzes are included.  These quizzes give you "before" and "after" snapshots of your knowledge and your progress.  Take these quizzes as many times as you like.  Random sampling of the question database provides new quiz questions each time you take an assessment quiz.

   "I just want to let you know that I have passed the written part for the COMT exam yesterday. Could not have done it without your courses. I could not find an area to post this on your web page, so please feel free to do so. Thanks!" KL

Be prepared to take the COMT® certification exam by taking the simulated practice exam.  Take the practice test as many times as you like.  Each time you take the practice test it will have a new set of questions that are presented in the same content area percentages that will comprise the actual exam.

   "Thanks again for the awesome prep course. I passed the practical exam and am now a COMT." DV

Are you ready? The course fee is $160, which includes 270 days (9 months) of access, plus up to12 hours of CE credits ($120 value). You must be logged in to purchase. If you are not logged in or registered, this link (below) will take you to the login page, and then it will bring you back to the purchase page. 

Not sure you can do this? And you don't want to "waste" $160? Then use the "no pressure" approach. Look at it this way. You are a COT® and you need CE credits. You are getting 12 CE credits with the course ($120), which means the prep course really only costs you $40. You can take the prep course and perhaps decide that you are really not ready to take the exam. Then just wait a year or two and take the prep course again when you have more confidence. Remember, you are getting another 12 CE credits, so you are really only paying a total of $80 above the cost of the CE credits, which is money well spent.
