New Licensure Examination

Posted in Latest News on January 3, 2014.

The Florida Board of Opticianry voted in November 2011 to begin using the National Optician’s Practical Examination developed by the National Commission of State Opticianry and Regulatory Boards (NCSORB) for the Florida Opticianry licensure examination.

The NCSORB National Optician’s Practical Examination is given in computer testing centers on a year round basis throughout the United States in a multiple-choice and skill simulation format. The NCSORB National Optician’s Practical Examination is two-part, one for spectacles and one for contact lenses. An applicant must receive a passing score on both parts to obtain licensure as an Optician in Florida.
