We are looking for a Licensed Optician with a minimum of 2-3 years experience to work with our patients, lead the expansion of our optical services, and supervise optical staff. Our patient population is primarily pediatric, and we are seeking an optician with enthusiasm for working with children.

You should be able to recommend specialized eyewear for sports and occupational use along with appropriate tints and anti-reflective coatings. You will also need good computer skills, including the ability to prepare and place lens and frame orders and perform billing and insurance eligibility / authorizations.
Our optical shops will have open hours Monday-Friday 8am – 7:00pm and two Saturdays per month. Your full-time work schedule will total 40 hours per week and will include some evening and Saturday hours.
The base salary will be in the $45,000-$55,000 range, dependent upon experience, plus an additional profit sharing bonus. Benefits include paid vacation, paid sick leave, 401K, and health/dental insurance.
