Board of Examiners in Optometry

Valid license numbers may or may not
include four alpha characters. If you have
an alpha-numeric license number, you must
enter all characters in order to renew online.

The Board of Examiners in Optometry is staffed by the Division of Corporations, Business, and Professional Licensing. The Board consists of four optometrists and one public member. Board members are appointed by the governor and confirmed by the Legislature.

The board adopts regulations to carry out laws governing the practice of optometry in Alaska. It makes final licensing decisions and takes disciplinary actions against people who violate licensing laws. The Board meets once a year and offers a public comment period at each meeting. Meeting agendas and minutes are available from the licensing examiner and will be posted to this website once prepared.

Please Note: The licensing process may take up to six weeks after all information is received.
