Analysing the latest data of optometry supply in Australia

Victoria and NSW are currently estimated to have an oversupply (1 and 34), however every region except the ACT will suffer worsening shortfalls from 2023 onwards

The above chart shows Australia's number of FTE optometrists is predicted to increase by 2,539 over the next 18 years. A significant increase of practitioners under the age of 35 is reflective of the country's new optometry schools

This chart shows that Australia's ageing population will result in greater demand among older generations, resulting in a need for more than 3,600 additional optometrists
