Optometric Licensing and Disciplinary Board

Optometrists came under the jurisdiction of the Department upon its creation in 1917. Optometry

includes the examination, diagnosis, and treatment of the human eye and its appendages without the

use of surgery. The Board is made up of seven members appointed by the Secretary, consisting of five

licensed optometrists, one faculty member with the Illinois College of Optometry, and one public

member. The Board is charged with providing expert knowledge and advice on disciplinary matters and

professional performance and conduct. For more information on this profession, see the internet page

for the Association of Regulatory Boards of Optometry .
