I/O Psychology September 17, 2007 The Career Path Of Optometry Optometry is a health care profession concerned with eyes and related structures, vision, visual system and vision information processing in humans. The median wage for optometrists is about $42.33 an hour, which is about $88,040 yearly. Around 2004, the employment outlook was at 34,000 employees. There’s a projected growth that averages 10% to about 20%. To recent graduates, there isn’t so much a surplus but there will be many employment opportunities available, about 16,000 employees would be needed. The study of the eye is very important these days. With all the new technology in eye care, many will seek services. It’s a good way to do what I find interesting and make a good living. Other jobs that I could pursue, which are similar to optometry, are Orthodontists, Prosthodontists, Physician Assistants Respiratory Therapists, and Dental Assistants. It’s not that similar to optometry.
