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

 

This full-time opportunity for a Doctor of Optometry is available at Eye Care Optometric, located in Lakeport, California.

 

Why you should apply

 

This well-established, small-town Optometry practice is growing, and long-term opportunity is on the horizon for the right Doctor of Optometry. If you’re looking to ditch the traffic jams, want to join a tight-knit team in a small community, and are intrigued by a potential future partnership/ownership opportunity in California, this is your chance!

 

Located in charming Lakeport right on Clear Lake, this small town has an abundance of outdoor activities, including local hiking, biking, fishing, and golfing—not to mention a plethora of water sports and activities. The town offers frequent events for all ages at the community theatre, courthouse museum, library, and park. Its proximity to some of California's most visited destinations—San Francisco, Napa and Sonoma (Wine Country), Mendocino, and Sacramento, to name a few—make it an ideal choice to practice.

 

About the practice

 

The practice was first opened in 1967 when Dr. Marshall Buckner came to Lakeport. Dr. David Browning, a second-generation Lakeport native, joined the practice in 1984 and Dr. Donald Lasher in 2000 as his associate. Together, they are continuing the tradition of quality eye care established by the now retired Dr. Buckner.

 

Located on Main Street since 2000, this free-standing practice provides Lake County residents of all ages a full scope of optometric services, including optometric medical care. The office is fully suited with automated optical equipment, in addition to an OCT, OPTOMAP, and Oculus KM5 (for dry eye evaluations), and a TOPO with CL module and anterior photography. The practice team of 12 staff members consists of two Optometrists, an office manager, and several front/back office optical technicians. Patients enjoy a business casual ambiance while they shop from a large selection of top-brand eyewear.

 

About the OD opportunity

 

The practice is seeking a Doctor of Optometry to provide high-quality care for patients of all ages, insurances, and visual/medical diagnoses. Office hours are 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Monday through Friday.

 

To be successful in this role, you must show demonstrated leadership, communication, and interpersonal skills, as well as compassion for patient health and safety. The ideal candidate will be honest, responsible, service-oriented, and community-involved, with a talent for building relationships and solving visual problems. Additionally, the minimum qualifications include:

 

  • Doctor of Optometry license in the state of California
  • Glaucoma Certification
  • Experience preferred, but new grads will be considered

 

As a full-time employee of the practice, you’ll enjoy a range of benefits, including:

 

  • Competitive salary with bonus on production
  • Medical coverage (shared cost)
  • Paid vacation, sick, personal, and holiday time
  • Continuing education reimbursement up to $1200
  • Occasional office socials, continuing education trips, and holiday parties
