POP-UP POLL: Keeping up the Pace – RESULTS

Exam Schedule Pace Sustainable for Most Survey Respondents

More than three-quarters of the respondents to the recent Women In Optometry Pop-up Poll say that they schedule two or three exams per hour. Most also feel that the pace is satisfactory—or at least manageable. However, 94 percent of the ODs who said that they run routinely run late and feel stressed are women ODs. Only six percent of male ODs said that they feel stressed by the schedule.

What’s interesting about that is that the stress in the schedule is not necessarily correlated to the number of exams.

While overall, the percentage of ODs who said that they routinely run late is comparatively small (7.5 percent), this chart shows that the distribution of exams per hour is wide.

Nearly one-in-four respondents to this poll were male ODs.

Among women ODs, 84 percent of respondents said they schedule between 2 or 3 exams per hour. Among men, the pace shows that there is a higher percentage of men who schedule either one exam per hour or four exams per hour.
