I am interested in eye care. I am planning to go into optometry because I do not want to perform surgery (under any circumstances) and I have a limited tolerance for some of the things that are seen in the hospital. However, I can not help but wonder how competitive it is between optometry and ophthamology. (The lack of the MD/DO title does not bother me.) My main concern is whether or not optometry will be overtaken by ophthamology and the job search after graduation will be difficult. I would appreciate any insights from ophthamolgists and future ophthamologists on this topic.
