The Maine State Board of Optometry was established
in 1909 as the State Board of Registration and Examination
in Optometry and received its present name in October 1973.
The Board consists of six members appointed by the Governor
for terms of five years. Five of the members must be resident
optometrists engaged in actual practice for a period of at
least five years prior to their appointment. The sixth member
must be a consumer member having no pecuniary interest in
optometry or optical products. The Board annually elects a
president and secretary-treasurer from its members. The Board
meets six times a year at the offices of Professional and
Financial Regulation, 76 Northern Ave., Gardiner, Maine.
The Board administers the exam twice a year, in February and
