The Board

Posted in Latest News on June 3, 2013.

The Florida Board of Optometry plays a leading role in the State’s ever-changing health care environment. This is accomplished through communication with the public, legislature, optometry schools, the optometric community, and Florida Optometric Association (FOA).

The Florida Board of Optometry is composed of seven members appointed by the Governor and confirmed by the Senate. Five members of the board must be licensed practitioners actively practicing in this state. The remaining two members must be citizens of the state who are not, and have never been, licensed practitioners. Additionally, the consumer members may not be connected with the practice of optometry or with any other vision-related profession or business. At least one member of the board must be 60 years of age or older.
