Our Mission

To protect the health, safety and welfare of Arizona citizens by regulating and achieving the highest standards in the optometry profession.


What We Do

The Board examines, licenses, and regulates the profession of Optometric Doctors (O.D.) in the state of Arizona, as well as regulates out-of-state contact lens dispensers.

The Arizona State Board of Optometry (“Board”) website linked to (“website”) is the official website of the agency for providing license lookup and license verification information. The website receives and hosts the information directly from the Board database in an electronic manner protected from alteration by unauthorized individuals.

Consistent with JCAHO, NCQA, and other standards for primary source verification, the site is considered a primary source for Board data and is the same information the agency provides through other means such as its IVR system at 602-542-3095, fax, mail or e-mail and is true and complete to the best of our knowledge. The information is updated daily at 4:30 p.m. and the date of the most recent update is provided at the bottom of each directory page.
