License Renewals Begin on May 6 this Year

Optometrists renewing their license this year are requested to take special note of the adjusted timeline in 2019.

Traditionally, optometrists had 90 days to renew beginning on April 1 each year.

However, with the launch of the new MiPlus system this summer, this year, the renewal period for licensees will be from May 6 to June 30.

“With the efficiencies of the new system, we are confident that licensees will have ample time to renew their licenses this year,” said Bureau of Professional Licensing Director Cheryl Wykoff Pezon. “The new platform will make the application and renewal process more efficient for both licensees and the department.”

In preparation for this transition, LARA will provide detailed instructions on how to register and use the new system including instructional videos and resources and services offered by the new platform.

In the coming months, LARA will update licensees on the new system in addition to the traditional renewal reminders that licensees receive.
