The Ohio Optical Dispensers Board has transitioned to a new licensing and renewal website.

The new eLicense system operates in a secure web-based environment and will eliminate the need for paper applications, paper renewals and payments via money orders or certified checks. The system will provide confirmation of fee payments and application submissions and will improve the ability of the Board to communicate with and guide you through the licensure and renewal process. All Boards and Commissions are moving to the new system, so it isn't optional.

Once you log in to eLicense for the first time, you will be asked to enter the following information:

Email Address (the one on file with the Board)
Security Code (will be mailed to you in June)
Social Security Number
Date Of Birth

All renewals, new license applications, reinstatements and other service requests will be processed online. You will not be able to establish an account or complete the renewal process without a valid email address on file with the Board. All communication from the Board will be sent to the email address on file so be sure to check your email frequently.

Questions? You are always welcome to email the Optical Dispensers Board at odb@odb.ohio.gov or call 1-614-466-9709.
