Welcome to Optometric Extension Program Foundation

Given the Current Uncertainty with COVID-19, OEPF we now exceptionally offer all educational meetings live over the Internet, giving participants the possibility to engage in an interactive course from the comfort of their own space.

We will offer participants of our over the internet courses an extra free day of hands-on training session after taking the courses, at a time when all offices are open again.

We are also offering a 10% reduction on our courses.

OEPF hereby extends its thanks to its incredible faculty.

Please consider making a small donation to our Go Fund Me page and to pass our page link to others. This allows us to continue to bring education, funding and support to our research, our education community and students.

We currently allow students to take our courses free of charge or at a greatly reduced rate
