About This Report


The Optometrists industry has exhibited growth over the past five years, thanks to robust demand from the burgeoning elderly population, which has caused optometry services to expand. Looking forward, as healthcare reform requires individuals to have pediatric vision care coverage, this trend will support demand for eye examinations and corrective eyewear products from this demographic.

This industry includes practitioners that have a Doctor of Optometry (OD) degree. ODs examine, diagnose, treat and manage diseases, injuries and disorders of the eye and associated structures. Operators may also prescribe and sell eyeglasses and contact lenses. These practitioners operate private or group practices in their own offices or in facilities like hospitals. The industry does not include ophthalmologists (i.e. medical doctors who are also trained to perform eye surgery).

The report covers the scope, size, disposition and growth of the industry including the key sensitivities and success factors. Also included are five year industry forecast, growth rates and an analysis of the industry key players and their market shares.
