This study aims to investigate the impacts of all aspects of employee empowerment on job satisfaction through moderation of person-organization fit in order to offer baseline data for the welfare of optometrists and improvement of the working environment. Optometrists working at any level in Pakistan were surveyed using a standardized structured questionnaire for this study. Responses to a 5-point Likert scale questions about job satisfaction, employee empowerment, and person- organization fit were collected. Advanced statistical tools SPSS & Smart PLS were used to analyze the collected data. The results showed that over half of Pakistani optometrists (51.2%) are unsatisfied with their jobs. Optometrists are usually empowered in their profession and influence the workplace and the work they do. Despite this, it was shown that optometrists have a poor level of job satisfaction. Furthermore, the role of Person Organization Fit as a moderating variable was not established. The control variables demonstrated a significant association between pay packages and job satisfaction. The study's findings suggest that optometrists are not content with their work despite their psychological empowerment because of poor remuneration. The configuration of relationships tested is relatively novel.

Keywords : Employee empowerment, Person-organization fit, Job Satisfaction, Optometrist, Meaningful work, Competence, Self-Determination.
