Getting sued for malpractice is a no-win situation. Even if you’re not at fault, you still lose your time and suffer from the emotional toll and overall distraction. 

Fortunately, malpractice payments on behalf of optometrists are rare; on average, there are less than 34 cases nationally each year, and half of them are less than $50,000.

Over the course of a 35-year career, 95% of ophthalmologists will have one claim against them, and more than half can expect two or three. While optometry may never incur the same level of risk, ODs must remain diligent as practitioners provide more and more medical services.
