by Conor Stewart, last edited Aug 9, 2019
Number of optometrists per population in Europe 2017 The number of optometrists per population was highest in Spain, accounting for 3.63 per 10,000 population. This was followed by Denmark with 3.18 per 10,000 population and Norway with 2.88 per population. Although it is important to add that the source states that the professions of Optometry and Optics in Spain and the Nordic countries are combined, which clarifies the high numbers per population.
