The Laser and Surgical Procedures Examination (LSPE) is designed to assess optometric cognitive ability to appropriately manage and perform certain laser and surgical skills.

LSPE is a stand-alone elective exam offered to 4th year optometric students, optometric residents, and optometric practitioners administered at NCCTO. This is a hybrid examination consisting of both a clinical skills portion and a multiple-choice portion which is administered in a computer-based testing (CBT) format.
