Abstract: This study investigated the job satisfaction of part I registered optometrists in relation to organizational settings and demographic characteristics. The first objective was to assess the level of job satisfaction of optometrists working in two organizational settings (business and the clinical) in Hong Kong. The second objective was to find out if any significant differences in optometrists' job satisfaction exist between the business and the clinical organizational settings. The third objective was to study the relationship between the job satisfaction and the demographic characteristics of optometrists. An optometrists' job satisfaction measurement tool was developed to collect data from 302 optometrists via mail questionnaire survey. After a month period, 97 completed questionnaires were collected. The response rate was 32%. The results showed that there is statistical difference in job satisfaction of optometrists working in the two different organizational settings. The data also showed that the optometrists working in the clinical setting are more satisfied than those that are working in the business setting Demographic data such as age, academic qualification and income were found to have a statistically significant relationship with job satisfaction. In general, the optometrists in Hong Kong are satisfied with their jobs.
