The mission of the National Board of Examiners in Optometry (NBEO) is, to serve the public and the profession of optometry by developing, administering, scoring, and reporting results of valid examinations that assess competence.
Advancing the Assessment of Competence®
Our NBEO symbol is designed to represent our distinctiveness as an organization. The two crescents encompass our foundation: optometry and testing. This foundation characterizes the confluence of these two professions. Emerging from this foundation are three bars, each increasing in height to represent our past, present, and future. NBEO is continuously striving for excellence in testing in optometry.
