**As of 6/19/17 the Board is no longer accepting paper applications.**


On June 19, 2017 the Board transitioned to a new online licensing and renewal system. The new 24/7 system operates in a secure web-based environment and eliminates paper applications and payments via paper check.

Current Licensees: You will receive e-License login information and a security code from the Board in the near future to create a user profile for renewing your license and completing other service requests, i.e., name changes, reporting continuing education, etc.

New Applicants: To apply for a therapeutic optometrist license click here to navigate to the e-License Portal. (This includes Endorsement applicants.)

Reinstatement Applicants should contact the Board via email for instructions on accessing their previous information. (

When accessing the e-License portal you must use Chrome or Fire Fox. The portal is not compatible with Explorer.
