**Important message regarding license expiration dates: As part of the response efforts to the Novel Coronavirus 2019 (COVID- 19), State Surgeon General Dr. Scott A. Rivkees issued Emergency Order DOH No. 20-015 extending the licensure renewal expiration date until March 31, 2021 for any health care practitioner with licensure renewal deadlines between December 31, 2020 and March 01, 2021. The license expiration date for Opticians expiring December 31, 2020 is extended to March 31, 2021.
To ensure you receive your renewal notification from the department, your current mailing address must be on file. Failure to renew an active or inactive license by the expiration date will result in the license being placed in delinquent status. Failure by a delinquent licensee to renew before the expiration of the current licensure cycle renders the license null and void without any further action by the board or the department.
A licensee who remains on inactive status for more than two consecutive biennial licensure cycles and who wishes to reactivate the license may be required to demonstrate the competency to resume active practice by sitting for a special purpose examination or by completing other reactivation requirements.
Licensees requesting to reactivate their license from inactive or retired status are required to pay additional fees and comply with specific continuing education requirements. Please contact the board office at email@example.com to request your reactivation requirements.
If you are reactivating your license, please refer to the Laws & Rules governing your practice for additional requirements.

FOCAL Education is Celebrating our 11th Biennium, thats a total of 21 years of Educating Florida Opticians with the best Education in the industry. Visit our Review page and see what your fellow Opticians are saying about FOCAL Education. Our Motivation for creating FOCAL Education was being very disappointed with the quality of continuing education for Opticians. Not only do we offer the best education, but we have the best Speakers. We have Opticians, Optometrist, Ophthalmologist, and Leading Company Product Consultants sharing their expertise with you. Our Venues and locations of our Conferences are second to none. We select high end Hotels and Resorts for you to enjoy, such as Gaylord Palms Resort in Kissimmee, Don Cesar at St.Petersburg Beach, Hilton in Tampa, Hyatt Regency Riverfront in Jacksonville. Many of our Opticians that attend our Conferences bring their familes with them so they can have a mini vacation at the same time. We have lots of fun at our Conferences, with great music, drawings, and goodies and some of our Conferences include a Continental Breakfast. We are not your typical and ordinary Continuing Education Provider, we have set the standards higher and to the next level, (We have had other CE Providers attend/visit our conferences to see what we are doing different and what is attracting such a large attendance only to have them try to replicate what we do) Our Strong attention to the best education puts you on the next level as an Optician and the word is getting around that we are here on a mission to do just that. Give us a try...Join our family...you will not be disapointed...
