Reply To: New optometry courses


The answer is look at the CVs of the Council or board of all the major bodies, College, ABDO, FODO and to a lesser extent the AOP.
Employees, senior managers, directors of corporate doctor figure highly.
The corporate sector represents more than half the number of practices/stores/ outlets and they recognised some years ago that the way to reduce the perceived high salaries of optometrists was to increase the supply and have taken positive action to increase the graduates over the past 10 years or so.
Prices for optical appliances haven’t come down in the same period in any comparative way to salaries, so the answer seems to be there are still high incomes possible but only if you are the owner or director.
