What is Optometry?

The job of an optometrist is to examine patients’ eyes. It can involve providing general eye tests, giving advice on visual problems and being able to spot eye diseases such as cataracts. Jobs in the optometry field will also include helping patients to choose glasses and, at times, writing referral letters to the patient’s doctor. An optometrist should be able to recognise factors in a patient’s lifestyle that could affect their eyesight and provide advice on how they can make adaptations; therefore, it is important they have strong interpersonal skills.

What Can an Optometrist Earn?

The salary of someone who works in optometry can vary in relation to their position (optometrist, ophthalmologist, optometrist receptionist etc.). A typical starting salary for a newly qualified optometrist is typically around £25,000, and can grow up to £60,000+ with more experience and qualifications.
