Optometry Board Certification Exams

Exam Dates

The Board Certification exam is offered twice a year in February/March and July/August at over 700 Meazure Learning Test centers worldwide. Registration for the exam opens approximately 2 months prior to the examination period. To secure a convenient date and location for the exam, it is best to register as early as possible. Candidates may register for the exam any time after post-graduate requirements have been submitted and approved.

Exam Fee

The standard exam fee is $950. Recent graduates and residents may qualify for a reduced fee. Please contact our office to see if you qualify.


Candidates may register for the exam after paying the exam fee. An email will be sent to each candidate containing an eligibility ID and instructions for scheduling the exam with Meazure Learning.
