Hi, I'm a pre-optometry student trying to get more informed about what it's like to be an optometrist.

What are some current issues/challenges that you guys (optometrists) have to face?

Increasing tuition costs, decreasing reimbursements, sales competition, opposing legislation, oversupply due to uncontrolled creation of new schools... That should give you a good starting point.

Warby Parker, opternative, 1800 contacts.
CVS and VSP partnership, oversaturation, commercialization of profession.

Ironically, the easiest part is patient care

High tuition with salaries not in proportion. Saturation in many big cities.
