SDN Members don't see this ad. (About Ads) I will be enrolling at Nova this coming August. Considering the massive debt I will be in, I was wondering what I should be expecting to make as an optometrist to start. I've read some websites and pamphlets with conflicting numbers, so I'm a bit confused. Also, what can I expect to be making after 5 years, 10 years, etc.? Thanks!
