Practice where optometry is exciting, rewarding and allows plenty of exposure to medical-based optometry! No ophthalmologist within a 2-hour radius, so ample opportunity to see ocular urgencies and keep up your optometric medical skills in additional to routine primary care.

Good rapport with local physicians, excellent fun and professional staff, as well as a growing client base.

Competitive daily minimum ($600 per day for new grads, but will negotiate higher for experienced ODs); after 3 months of practice, a percentage of gross differential bonus will be added. Buy-in options will be discussed after initial year of contract work. New grads are welcomed, and encouraged, as this is an ideal location to gain experience in all aspects of independent optometry! Experienced optometrists looking to buy-in or purchase are also highly welcome!
