The practice offers medical optometry and specialize in the diagnosis and treatment of ocular diseases, managing chronic conditions, and specialty contact lenses including soft, toric, hybrid, rigid gas permeable, and scleral. As the practice is expanding, the team is looking for an additional Associate Optometrist who is interested in exploring ocular specialties to offer additional services to patients.   

Fully staffed with a cohesive group of highly-trained employees, the patient flow is efficient, enabling the Optometrists to focus on providing individualized care to ensure optimal eye health—each doctor has a dedicated pre-tester and scribe.
