As an Independent Optometrist located inside or adjacent to a Walmart Vision Center or Sam’s Club Optical location, you sublease space to practice “pure” Optometry. This allows you to practice to your state license’s fullest scope of practice and practical training, while allowing you to prescribe ophthalmic materials, lenses and therapeutics that you feel are best for your patients and their Optometric care. Since you control your Optometric practice, you set your own professional service fees, control your patient schedule, determine which insurance plans you wish to provide for, and manage/collect the associated patient revenues for your professional services. Rent includes your pre-testing equipment, fully furnished exam lanes, a furnished office (space, furniture, fixtures) and utilities.
