SDN Members don't see this ad. (About Ads) Do pharmacists earn more then optometrists? Commercial pharmacists earn 108k, hospital, maybe 80,000. Optometrists seem to be all over the place. It seems all optometrists measured have a medium of 110k. But just commerical I cant find numbers. I also see advertisments all over the place, some areas for commercial have as low as 60k, others as high as 98k. VA seems to be 45-90k, Indian Affairs, lower at 40-60k. What's the deal?
