I'm currently juggling acceptance letters to multiple schools and was wondering what the outlook is for the Optometry field. I've realized after browsing this forum that there are a lot of "haters" of the optometry profession. the government and multiple magazines and websites say that the demand for optometrists is large and projected to increase dramatically, but i see that a lot of people are complaining about lack of jobs. I'd like to hear from recent grads, maybe within the past 1-3 years. how do you feel the job market looks? are the people who complain about lack of jobs unwilling to look in areas that are not already saturated with OD's?
