Examining the internet use among eyecare professionals for work reasons

2014 Internet usage eyecare

While the Internet use of optometrists for professional purposes has remained fairly steady since 2011, both opticians and ophthalmologists have increased their average number of Internet sessions per week for work, according to the Sources & Interactions 2014 Study – Eyecare Edition.

Currently, ophthalmologists report having more Internet sessions for work than other eyecare professionals. However, they also report spending less time per session than the two other groups. Opticians spend the highest amount of time per Internet session followed by optometrists.
