A ten-question survey was developed to analyze the viability and future of the optometric profession within the state of Washington. The survey was sent to optometrists in the King and Spokane counties. Overall a 40% response rate was obtained. Specifically, 44% (22 of 50) from Spokane County optometrists and 36% (18 of 50) from King County optometrists. Results comparing the counties side by side indicate the members are satisfied in Washington with only slight differences between the counties.
