We are seeking an experienced optometrist for our vision correction boutique practice specializing in laser (LASIK, SMILE, PRK) and lens implant care. You join a team of two surgeons, two optometrists, and a highly skilled support staff in a modern West LA location. We are looking for either significant part-time (3 days per week) or full-time employment, depending on your interest and availability.
We anticipate that you have experience in, and are comfortable taking, appropriate medical and personal health history as necessary to facilitate cataract consultations, laser vision correction consultations and routine or general ophthalmology examinations. You are familiar with routine testing in an ophthalmology practice setting including subjective refraction, Goldmann tonometry, ultrasound pachymetry, pupillometry, dilated ophthalmoscopy and the like. We require a minimum 3 years in clinical practice after completion of training.
You should have facility with use and operation of ophthalmic diagnostic instrumentation for LASIK and cataract surgery evaluation including autorefraction, topography, Galilei tomography, laser interferometer biometry, fundus photography, OptoVue Avanti OCT and other technology. Where your current knowledge and skills are able to be elevated, we will
support you and provide appropriate training opportunities.
You will participate in discussions of treatment planning and in certain steps of entering treatment plans into our laser system, and participate in entering and analyzing outcomes data for Phakic and IOL patients. Clinical competence and refracting skills are very important, of course. In addition, we’ll want you to learn our particular brand of patient care, which is delivered with a unique style and personality.
Our office pays attention to many details and takes great care of the staff which creates a quality workplace that is distinctive, part of our brand. This is not the typical "grind-it-out” office and the emphasis is always welfare of patients, good outcomes, good care. We place less emphasis on technology (though we have the latest!) and more so on the client experience. Clinical skills we are seeking include being comfortable with medical ophthalmology and refractive care.
Kindly respond if seriously interested. Thank you!
