    States where ODs make bank in 2016


    1. Alaska

    Yet again, Alaska is the top-paying state for optometrists. ODs in this state earn an hourly mean wage of $86.93, adding up to an annual mean wage of $180,810.

    Our last list of states where ODs make bank must have convinced quite a few people to make the trip up north. Last year, BLS listed 50 ODs living in Alaska, but this year, that number grew to 70.  

    Even with that influx of ODs, the state saw a slight bump in wages compared to last year’s annual mean wage of $178,640.
