Students graduating from schools of optometry, and established optometrists who desire to relocate need a systematic approach to determine an optimal location for their practices. This project demonstrates a method of finding that optimal location with an example of its application. The process is compared to performing a complete vision examination including case history, data collection, analysis, diagnosis, and treatment. Key factors considered are personal and professional goals, economics of the potential location, and practice opportunities in the area.
