Go to salary.com and enter the requested information. It depends on where you live and whether you're one that can perform surgeries on eyes and prescribe medications for them (ophthalmologist) or one that just prescribes glasses and can do a basic eye exam (optometrist)

So far, both answers are wrong...it does depend on what part of the country you work in and how good you are, like any other profession. OPTOMETRISTS CAN PRESCRIBE DRUGS, TREAT DISEASE, AND DO MINOR SURGICAL PROCEDURES!!!! Now that i got that off my chest, average starting salary is roughly 80,000, but depending on if you own your own practice or not, the sky is the limit. I am an optometrist for 5 years now, employed by another optometrist. I make with benefits about 150,000, where the owner makes 3 times that. this is not normal, but very possible if you work hard. Hope this was helpful!

good job dr lennox. its a common misconception that is shamefully promoted by ophthalmologists that optometrists "just prescribe glasses". optometrists in literally every state can and do rx oral and topical drugs and treat any and all eye disease short of invasive eye surgery like cataract extraction. everyone should be going to an optometrist for literally every eye problem, unless they know that they need invasive eye surgery.

optometrist = primary eye care physician
ophthalmologist = eye surgeon

the vast majority of eye care can be and should be done by an optometrist.

i make $125k working for another optometrist. but my starting salary 7 years ago at my very 1st job was about $70k. surgeons (ophthalmologists) generally make more.

An optometrist makes anywhere from $72,000 up to $94,000 a year. An ophthalmologist makes anywhere from $97,000 up to $200,000 a year.
