    Pay Scale

    I know this question has to many variables to answer concretely. But, on average what does the average licensed opticians get paid in North Carolina? I have a chance to move there and I don't want to underprice or overprice myself so I am trying to get an idea of what to ask for. And "yes" I have thought of a million dollars, but I think that might fall under overpricing.

    When I first moved here, the state demographic had licensed opticians making $45k a year. I don't know about Charlotte, but in the Triangle, that's pretty close. Non licenses can do well if they hook up with the right place. Having said that, there are a lot of opticians here making far less. Be very firm and upfront in your discussions.

    Check Sams or Walmart. They pay pretty well to start.

    Check on licensing requirements prior to coming. They are far different than SC, and you will have to do quite a bit prior to achieving licensure in NC. Good luck.
