Because the number of optometrists is limited by the number of accredited optometry schools, the job outlook for licensed optometrists is very good. Admission to Doctor of Optometry programs is competitive, however, as it is for professional degree programs in other fields. In addition, a large number of currently practicing optometrists is expected to retire over the coming decade, creating opportunities for new optometrists.
