    5 reasons that prevent eyeMDs from being happier


    2) Attempting to retire too young

    Over the last 22 years, we cannot tell you how many physicians have fretted over the thought that they may run out of money if they retire at age 62. However, so far, no one has done that without a medical reason.

    We have worked with hundreds of physicians in their 40s or 50s who insisted they would retire at age 62. However, when the age of 62 drew near, they started pushing retirement out year after year.

    There may be exceptions, but ophthalmologists love what they do. They love their specialty. They have attachments to their patients, office support, and colleagues. They do not want to retire to the age of 62.

    We suggest physicians be realistic when targeting a retirement age. Why save a lot of money to meet that target, then give up a rewarding working life? Why not spend some of that unnecessary savings when you probably will not retire at age 62?

    70 is now the new 62. Don’t retire too early, then find yourself saying, “I feel like I just don’t count anymore. I shouldn’t have retired.”
