Percentage of optometrists and opticians in selected European countries 2017 This statistic displays the proportion of optometrists and opticians in the 29 countries of the European Union in 2017. In many countries in Europe the optical industry is split between optometrists and opticians. This is apparent in the United Kingdom where optometrists account for 69 percent of the workforce and opticians account for 31 percent. In countries such as Spain, Norway, Finland and Sweden optometrists account for 100 percent of the workforce. In Spain and the Nordic countries, Optometry and Optics are combined in one. France has the highest number of opticians per 10,000 inhabitants with an estimated 5.34 opticians. The number of opticians is also quite high in Belgium and Switzerland with approximately 3.1 per 10,000 population in Belgium and 3.25 opticians per 10,000 population in Switzerland. Cyprus has the highest number of optician retail units per 10,000 population with 2.54 outlets per 10,000 population in 2017.
