How many ophthalmologists are there in Canada?
It is interesting to know that in Canada there are approximately 1137 ophthalmologists. This signifies that there are approximately 33 ophthalmologists per 1 million people. There are 172 residents. Not too many people know that prior to 2006, in Canada, 18-24 ophthalmologists were retiring annually, but now this figure has dropped to 11-17. Specialists consider that the ratio of full-time ophthalmologists to population would remain stable in the years to come. The main idea is that there are more ophthalmologists currently practicing in Canada than was previously anticipated.
