There’s an exciting full-time opportunity for an Optometrist at Coastal Eye Care located in Astoria Area, Oregon.  

Why you should apply

Coastal Eye Care has four successful practice locations in the coastal towns of Astoria, Long Beach, Seaside and Tillamook. No matter the location, patients know they will receive the personal attention and professional care that is the foundation of Coastal Eye Care.

Located on the Northern Oregon Coast, Astoria is known as Nature’s Playground and features picturesque scenery with a fabulous array of indoor and outdoor activities. There’s something for everyone to enjoy all-year round. Visitors and residents can explore over 800 miles of navigable waters for kayaking, clamming, crabbing and fishing—or enjoy a day of world-class climbing, cycling, hiking, rafting, and windsurfing. The Astoria area offers a wide variety of places to visit from the notable Tillamook Creamery to the Tillamook County Quilt Trail, and the Oregon Coast Scenic Railroad—not to mention, its local artisan foods and fine breweries. With all the natural beauty this coastal area has to offer, and it's truly a wonderful place to call home. 

About Coastal Eye Care 

This successful multi-location practice was founded in 1999 by Dr. Darren Thorsen, O.D., and has provided full-service optometry to families and residents for over 20 years. With three thriving locations, Dr. Thorsen recently opened the Tillamook practice, specializing in eye care emergencies, ocular disease management, specialty contact lenses and surgical co-management. Conveniently located in a bustling downtown, the practice is easily accessible from Oregon Coast Highway 101, OR-6 and OR-131. To support the expansion of Coastal Eye Care, while preserving the gold-standard service the patients know and expect, Dr. Thorsen is looking to add an additional provider to the highly-trained team of four staff members. 

Committed to helping patients gain the best vision through optimal eye health, this practice uses state-of-the-art vision care technology to diagnose and treat a wide array of eye diseases. The practice is well-appointed with automated optical equipment, behind-the-scenes functional technology, and leverages cloud-based software enabling electronic medical records and charting at all locations.
