Optometry Board Certification Exams
The Board Certification exam is offered twice a year in January and July at over 300 Prometric testing centers in the U.S. and Canada. Registration for the exam opens approximately 3 months prior to the examination period. Candidates may register for the exam all the way up to the first day of the exam, however, seat availability may be limited at that time. To secure a convenient date and location for the exam, it is best to register as early as possible.
For 2019, 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 Prometric.
