A survey was conducted of military optometrists; 471 surveys sent, 366 returned, and 5 undelivered, representing an overall response of 77.7 percent. Questions probed the scope of practice currently performed, and examined the professional and personal satisfaction of military life. The Army, Navy, and Air Force are the only branches of uniformed military service that commission optometrists. Graphs are presented comparing inter and intra comparisons of these three branches. The opportunity for personal comment was included in the survey. Some of these comments are presented.
