Mental health survey for optometrists

A survey designed to further understanding of mental wellbeing and burnout among optometrists and pre-registration optometrists has been opened for respondents.

Part of a wider PhD project undertaken by Neil Retallic at the University of Bradford, the survey included well-established questionnaires, demographic and risk factor questions, with open options for participants to provide comments.

‘The aim of this study is to determine the level of mental wellbeing and burnout amongst optometrists and pre-registration optometrists in the UK and to identify potential triggers, said Retallic.

‘Participation is voluntary, the form has approximately 30 questions, and the average completion time is eight minutes.
