Licensing


The Oregon Board of Optometry has made various forms available in Adobe's fillable PDF Format. Adobe Acrobat Reader is free software that lets you view and print Portable Document Format (PDF) files.

Applications to renew a current license are not available at this site. The Board now handles license renewal online. Emails are sent to the email address of record approximately 45 days before the license renewal due date. If you have questions or need the system access information, please contact the Board office. Please check your junk or spam folder for the email from the Board.
