Adding total visible pixels for each observer location from created viewsheds

I have used iteration in ModelBuilder to create multiple viewsheds for each observer location in a point feature class. However, I now need to transfer the value for visible pixels back to the observer feature class, so that I can then compare the total visible areas of different observer points. I can't join the tables as there is no common field in the raster and points files.

Does anyone know a way of automating this without manually having to insert the values into a new field in the points attributes table?
