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
