* Data rounded to nearest whole number

Data Source: Texas Department of Health, Division of Professional Licensing and Certification, September, 1999.

Includes: all active Optometrists with a Texas practice address. Excludes Optometrists with a status code as "not renewed", "expired", and "inactive" (501). In addition, 1,624 records were not included in this report because they had out-of-state addresses. The Optometrists were sorted by their county of practice. The county was determined based on the zip code. If the practice address was unavailable, the mailing address was used to determine the county.
