Number of optical retail outlets in selected European countries 2017 This statistic displays the number of optical retail outlets per 10,000 population in selected European countries in 2017. In this year Cyprus had the highest number of retail outlets with 2.54 optical retail outlets per 10,000 population. This was closely followed by Belgium with 2.39 optical retail outlets per 10,000 population. Optical retail outlets specialize in dispensing and fitting eyewear and contact lenses. Optometry in the European Union is regulated and subjected to review according to the legal provisions of optometry establishments in each individual country. The largest number of opticians per 10,000 population can be found in France with approximately 5.34 opticians per 10 thousand population in 2017. This trend is closely followed in Switzerland and Belgium with 3.25 and 3.1 opticians per 10,000 population respectively. In the United Kingdom the optometry industry is composed of optometrists and opticians with a split of 69 percent optometrists and 31 percent opticians. However, in several European countries such as Spain, Norway, Finland, Sweden and the Netherlands Optometrists account for 100 percent of the optical industry.
