Consumer Protection is our Mission.
The State Board of Optometry regulates the practice of Optometry in Colorado. The board does not regulate eye clinics or opticians. Board activities include licensing optometrists, investigating complaints against optometrists and the unlicensed practice of Optometry, and enforcing disciplinary actions against those who violate the Optometry practice act and board rules. The board is made up of seven members: five licensed optometrists and two public members.

The Division is now called the Division of Professions and Occupations, effective August 8, 2012. To help our consumers and licensees more readily locate and utilize our services, the legislature passed House Bill 12-1055 during the 2012 legislative session. Please note, the Division of Professions and Occupations will still be housed within the Department of Regulatory Agencies (DORA). Services the Division currently offers will remain the same.
