Statistics show that 94% of optometry students hope to be in solo practice within 5 years of graduation. Most optometry students have a long term goal to own their own practice. These students don't know where to begin; to turn their dreams into reality. Furthermore, established optometrists that want to relocate a practice, need a systematic. approach to finding the optimal location. The goal of this thesis is to highlight one aspect of the planning process, location analysis. This project will present a method of finding the optimal location and also an example of its application, using the state of Hawaii.
