Manila, September 27, 2013 – The Professional Regulation Commission announces the rescheduling of the Optometrists licensure exam from August 9-11, 2013 (Written), August 16-19, 2013 (Practical) to DECEMBER 2-4, 2013 (Written), DECEMBER 5-6, 2013 (Practical).

The licensure exam originally scheduled on August 2013 was indefinitely postponed due to vacancies in the Professional Regulatory Board of Optometry.
