Median of all compensation (including tips, bonus, and overtime) by years of experience.
More years of relevant experience do not necessarily translate to higher paychecks. The average beginner in this position makes around $40K, but folks who have been around for five to 10 years see a markedly higher median salary of $46K. Certified Ophthalmic Medical Technologists with one to two decades of relevant experience report an average salary of approximately $51K. Individuals who report more than two decades of experience seem to make only slightly more than folks in the 10-to-20 year range; the more senior group sees median earnings in the comparatively modest ballpark of $53K.
