The ICO curricula are presented not as mandatory standards of training or practice, but as an educational tool and consensus example to stimulate multi-levels of training including basic, standard, and advanced programs. The ICO realizes the wide variability of educational standards, patterns and prevalence of diseases, and social structures for provision of eye care in geographic regions, and encourages continuous modification of these curricula according to the needs of different global communities.
