    How many people on here run their own practices (excluding walmart practices)?? How many patients do you see a day? Is it just you, or do you work with another OD? -- Thanks
    I own my private practice. I see patients 4 days a week and I have an associate that sees patients 2 days a week. On average we see about 25 patients a day. Of those, usually 15 are full exams, 4 are contact lens evals, and the other 6 are either post-ops or pathology visits.

      CPW,

      I know you are a recent grad... and I was just wondering if it was hard to find work in private practice after graduation. Can you describe a little bit more about the different offices you work in? Do they do mostly optical sales? Are they group practices? Do you want to have your own practice one day?

      Sorry for all the questions... I am just very curious. I want to have a good idea what the market looks like is all because I would love to open my own practice one day! Thanks for your time :)
