Number of ophthalmologists in Canada

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.
