Board Of Directors                                                   Executive Director

The National Examining Board of Ocularists was formed in November, 1980, in response to the need for more uniform standards in the field of ophthalmic prosthetics (artificial eyes).

The National Examining Board of Ocularists is an independent agency whose primary function is the assessment of competence of the ocularist who performs the variety of health care related functions encountered in the fitting and fabrication of ophthalmic prosthetics.

The Board consists of eight members appointed by the American Academy of Ophthalmology, the American Board of Certification of Orthotics and Prosthetics, the American Society of Ocularists, The Canadian Society of Ocularists, and a Public Member who is elected by the National Examining Board of Ocularists.

The Certification Examination is offered annually and is a two-part examination consisting of written and practical sections. The examination is a criterion-referenced examination which has been developed and continues to be re-evaluated utilizing techniques which are accepted and approved by the psychometric community.

The National Examining Board of Ocularists is a member of The Institute for Credentialing Excellence (ICE), formerly the National Organization for Competency Assurance (NOCA). Guidance from the Commission is for organizations to meet the most rigid standards of excellence in test development and administration in certification.

Article XIII

The National Examining Board of Ocularists shall not discriminate against applicants on the basis of age, sex, color, religion, or national origin, and shall include a statement of this non-discrimination policy on the application and other publications.
