National Board of Examiners in Optometry

Mission Statement: To serve the public and the profession of optometry by developing, administering, scoring, and reporting results of valid examinations that assess competence.

Vision Statement: Advancing the Assessment of Competence
The NBEO website was designed to provide comprehensive information about the National Board’s examinations. Its purpose is to help answer your questions and to assist you in learning about and preparing for your licensing and self-assessment examinations. We urge you to carefully study the information on this website.

New NBEO Examination: The third administration of the new computer-based Continued Professional Development in Optometry (CPDO) exam was held on March 12, 2015 at Pearson VUE testing centers across the country. Registration is now open for the next administration which will be given on Thursday, September 24, 2015. In certain optometric jurisdictions, licensed practitioners who take the CPDO can earn a significant number of hours of continuing education.

Graduating Students: Upon verification of graduation from the attending school/college and passage of all required Parts, the National Board will release a free cumulative score report to you and the state boards you selected during your registration process. The scores are released to the State Board(s) electronically in order for the information to be retrieved. When contacting a state board, please have your OE Tracker number available. You may review and/or update your release selection by reviewing your profile.

Everyone associated with the National Board extends their best wishes for your success on the National Board examinations and in your practice of optometry. If you have any questions regarding the examinations or their requirements, please feel free to contact the National Board.
