I am a Philippines and United Arab Emirates licensed optometrist seeking to get an optician's license in the US.

The American Opticianry Board's website is either unavailable or unaccessible from the UAE because it has been several days that I tried to access the page but cannot get through.

How do I apply for the exams, what are the schedules and what are the requirements bearing in mind that 1) I am not an American 2) I do not have any experience in any American State.

I graduated 1992, worked in the Philippines as an optometrist until 1999. Got licensed and worked as an optometrist in the United Arab Emirates from 1999 to present.

I hope somone out there can help!
