The Optometric Leaders Forum (OLF), held in late January, is THE annual gathering of leaders from associations, provincial associations and Canadian schools of optometry. It is a good opportunity for taking stock of the current practice and identifying emerging trends. In order to obtain a snapshot of the situation, the Canadian Association of Optometrists (CAO) conducted two surveys. One was done among optometry students from the Montreal and Waterloo schools, and the other was done among young optometrists from 2013 to 2017. The respondents were therefore millennials aged 21 to 37. We compare students’ ideals to the reality of young graduates in a context of full employment.
