VSP Global is committed to providing professional opportunities for Optometrists. That’s why we’re connecting you to Premier Program providers recruiting for openings at their private practices.


There is a fantastic opportunity for a part-time or full-time Optometrist at Eye Concepts located in Columbia, South Carolina.  


Why you should apply


“Your Family Eye Care is Our Main Focus” is the motto of Eye Concepts—a well-established private practice committed to providing quality, comprehensive eye care in a friendly and professional environment. With two successful practice locations, the business is growing, and a long-term opportunity on the horizon for the right Optometrist. Whether you’re a well-rounded Optometrist looking to take the next step in your career, or a recent graduate ready to launch your career, we invite you to apply!


Home to the state’s capital and the University of South Carolina, Columbia is the second-largest city in the state and is known as one of the best places to live. This region provides its residents a unique opportunity for relaxed and convenient living with the amenities of big city life nearby. Outdoor enthusiasts will enjoy countless activities, including biking, hiking, rafting, fly fishing, camping, and golfing, to name a few—plus, there are two beautiful freshwater lakes to explore—Lake Murry and Lake Wateree. In addition, its proximity to some of South Carolina’s most visited destinations—Charlotte, Charleston, Myrtle Beach, and other fascinating cities makes it an ideal choice to practice and a prime location to live.


About Eye Concepts


Eye Concepts was acquired by Dr. Benjamin Ondersma in 2014, followed by Camden Eye Care in 2021. The practice offers primary care, diabetic eye care, management for glaucoma, cataracts, and ocular surface diseases. Also, the practice provides contact lens services and fittings for hard-to-fit contacts. Eye Concepts is located in a growing community and will relocate to a new stand-alone building. As the practice is expanding, the team is looking for an additional Optometrist to join a team of six employees and continue to provide the world-class service patients know and expect. 


The professionals at Eye Concepts take a one-on-one approach to provide patient-centric care. The practice is well-appointed with automated optical equipment and behind-the-scenes functional technology, including autorefractors, OPTOS, and Humphry Visual Field. Cloud-based technology is utilized to manage electronic health records and establishes a baseline of patients’ ocular health. The optical boutique offers customers with the latest designs in fashion eyewear at affordable prices. Plus, the Opticians offer personalized services to help patients select the perfect pair of glasses to complement lifestyles.  


About the opening


Eye Concepts is seeking a part-time or full-time Optometrist who always strives to provide exceptional patient care to enrich the quality of patients’ lives. You’ll practice at least three days a week to provide comprehensive eye care for all patients—approximately two to three patients are cared for hourly, with the first appointment beginning at 9:00 a.m. and the last appointment at 4:00 p.m. The office is closed on weekends and holidays. A candidate who has a great personality and is willing to provide fill-in care at Camden Eye Care Center, located 35 miles from Columbia, will be a fantastic addition to the practice. For the right Optometrist, a future partnership or ownership opportunity may be available.


To be successful in this role, you must demonstrate leadership, communication, interpersonal skills, and compassion for patient health and safety. The ideal candidate will be honest, responsible, service-oriented, community-involved, and willing to integrate new techniques and innovations that improve patient care and services. As a valued team member, your dedication and contributions will directly impact the long-term success of Eye Concepts.
