How can I buy only the "Premium Questions" or "FRCOphth Part 2" addon?

The "Premium Questions" and "FRCOphth Part 2" are add-on packages.  In other words, they can be purchased and accessed only if you have an active base subscription.  Consider them as high-yield questions to supplement the thousands of questions contained in our base question bank.  These add-on packages expire when your base subscription expires.

I love OphthoQuestions, but my subscription ran out. How do I renew my subscription?

Your previous test results and cumulative performance are stored for you even if you do not have an active subscription. However, you will not be able to access the questions and answer explanations without an active account. Once you renew your subscription, you will regain access to your previous tests. It is very easy to add more time to your account by going to your Home page.

I have finished all of the questions in a certain subject. How can I reset the questions in that section?

We offer free scheduled database resets once or twice a year.  If you want to reset your database at a different time, we offer a paid database reset function for a nominal fee.  Please note that your performance statistics are LOCKED for the academic year (i.e. until July 1st) once you reset your question database.  In other words, your performance statistics will NOT be updated as you answer questions after you reset the database.  We must do this to preserve the validity of the percentile rankings and Leaderboard statistics.
