Indiana Optometry CE Requirements

Indiana License Renewal Update - March 23, 2020

Governor Eric Holcomb, in Executive Order 20-09 issued March 23, 2020, ordered that professional licenses due to expire during the public health emergency are automatically extended until May 22, 2020. Optometry licenses, legend drug certificates, and controlled substance registrations set to expire on April 1, 2020, are now valid through May 22, 2020. The deadline for completing continuing education required for renewal is also extended until May 22, 2020. 

Please note:  Certificates of completion will be sent to test takers as a PDF attachment to an email.  Paper certificates will no longer be mailed.  Please allow 5-7 business days for your results to be processed. 

The continuing education (CE) courses presented by Indiana OPTOMETRY offer a wide range of educational opportunities for optometrists and are designed to help optometrists fulfill their requirements for license renewal. 

Online continuing education for an optometry license and optometric legend drug certificate renewal in the state of Indiana is now limited to a total of eight (8) hours biennially.  Optometrists seeking credits for licensure in other states should check with their state boards for number of online CE credits allowed. Indiana continuing education requirements can be found here.
