  • Well, how much does an optometrist make? Well an optometrist's salary is really dependent

  • and varied on the places in which they work. So some of the places which optometrists can

  • work can be in a hospital setting, like an HMO, they can be in a private practice where

  • you're essentially your own boss. You can be in a group practice where you have multiple

  • optometrists working together. Some optometrists are employed by surgeons called ophthalmologists.

  • Some optometrists choose to work in a more retail setting and there are other optometrists

  • that choose to work within the industry, and so they work as consultants to contact lens

  • manufacturers or lens manufacturers. And so because there's a wide range of jobs optometrists

  • can carry, the salary range is pretty wide too. So that range is usually somewhere between

  • eighty thousand to a hundred and fifty thousand dollars a year. Now most optometrists, when

  • they first get their foot in the door, their salary is at the lower end of that range until

  • they've entered the profession and have been there for awhile and their earning potential

  • goes up. Obviously optometrists that work in private practices or group practices may

  • have a higher ceiling, relative to other optometrists that work within a hospital system. The field

  • is definitely growing because of the aging population here in the States. You know the

  • need for vision care will always be there and so therefore the need for optometrists

  • will continue to grow.
