Looking Glass Eye Center is Seeking a Well-qualified Optometrist
Looking Glass Eye Center is seeking a well-qualified optometrist to join a team of 4 surgeons and 1 optometrist in beautiful western North Carolina. We have an office in Brevard and Hendersonville, both of which have fully staffed opticals. Our practice is patient-focused and we have an over 30-year history of providing excellent care using the latest technology. We have 2 cornea specialists, a glaucoma specialist, a medical retina specialist, and an optometrist, as well as approximately 45 employees.
We have a busy clinical setting and we seek a candidate who wishes to work 4-5 days a week, although we are potentially flexible with work-days/hours based on your needs and wishes. We envision a patient load somewhere between 20-35 patients a day, with staff help. Routine visits, walk-in patients, and a wide variety of ocular pathologies present every day. We place an emphasis on excellence in our care for patients in a compassionate and ethical environment.
Our office uses EHR and has all the latest equipment including a Humphrey visual field, Heidelberg OCT, Ellex SLT and Yag laser, Argon laser, IOL Master, and a minor OR for plastics procedures such as blepharoplasties. We are busy surgically doing cataract, glaucoma, and plastics cases. We have used premium toric and multifocal lenses for over a decade. Our 2 cornea specialists also perform Lasik and PRK. Our medical retina specialist does intravitreal injections for all medical retina pathology.
A compensation package would include a base salary, a bonus structure, and revenue from the optical. Benefits would include malpractice insurance, health insurance, and a 401K plan (subject to eligibility).
An experienced candidate is preferred but we would consider a recent graduate.
Western NC is a wonderful place to live offering 4 seasons, unlimited outdoor activities, a vibrant arts and restaurant scene, good schools, and a variety of communities and neighborhoods. Asheville, Pisgah National Forest, and Dupont State Park are all within easy driving distance.
