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.  

 

An excellent full-time opportunity for an Associate Optometrist is now available at Primary Eyecare Center, located in San Luis Obispo and Atascadero, California. 

 

Why you should apply 


Primary Eyecare Center strives to provide outstanding vision and eye care services in a friendly and comfortable environment. As a long-standing business with two flourishing practice locations on the Central Coast, Primary Eyecare Center has a long-term opportunity for the right Associate Optometrist. If you’re a well-rounded professional looking to contribute to the success of a well-known practice, collaborate with other talented professionals, and live in a beautiful region of California, this is your chance! 

 

California’s Central Coast comprises four scenic regions, including Monterey Bay, San Luis Obispo, Santa Barbara, and Ventura—all offering pristine beaches, miles of picturesque shorelines, lush mountains, desert landscapes, rolling wine country hills, and panoramic views of the Pacific Ocean. The San Luis Obispo region is home to a bustling college town, historic missions, and 16 different cities and towns. With numerous state parks and beaches, residents can easily enjoy an escape into nature—kayaking in Morro Bay and hiking the coastal bluffs north of Cayucos or the inland hills of San Luis Obispo or Atascadero. The region also offers safe neighborhoods, excellent school districts, and a wonderful place to raise a family. Everything the Central Coast has offers and its proximity to California’s most visited destinations makes it a prime location for living and working.

To continuing supporting the growth of both practice locations, Primary Eyecare Center is looking to add a long-term Associate Optometrist to the team of 16 staff members.
