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.

 

There are two full-time Doctor of Optometry opportunities available at Cedar Creek EyeCare located in Winchester, Virginia.

 

Why you should apply

 

This successful, well-established Optometry practice is flourishing, and long-term opportunity is on the horizon for the right Doctors of Optometry. If you’re looking to join a growing practice in a vibrant community with a future partnership opportunity, this is your chance!

 

Centrally located just 50 miles west of Washington D.C., in the beautiful Shenandoah Valley, Winchester offers small-town comfort with the added convenience of nearby city life. Its rich history dating back to the mid-1700s, offers residents and visitors a unique window into the past. Conveniently located downtown, Old Town Winchester features a quaint pedestrian walking mall offering a variety of restaurants, cafes, shops, historic architecture, museums, and is home to the century-old Shenandoah Apple Blossom Festival. There’s plenty of beautiful places to explore—the Appalachian Trail, Blue Ridge Mountains, and Shenandoah National Park to name a few. Its proximity to Washington Dulles International Airport, and Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport makes Winchester an ideal place to practice and a prime location to live.

 

About the practice

 

Cedar Creek EyeCare has provided optometry services and vision care products to the Winchester community since 1995. Founded by Dr. David A. Tufts, the practice moved to its current home in 2007, and is conveniently located near Interstate 81 and Route 66. As a successful optometric business in the community, this practice focuses on providing exceptional high-quality care for patients of all ages, insurances, and visual/medical diagnoses, and specializes in contact lenses. To support the practice’s continued growth, Dr. Tufts plans on adding additional providers to the current staff of eight employees. 

 

The practice uses state-of-the-art diagnostic technology and vision correction products to diagnose and treat a wide array of eye diseases, conditions and problems. The office is warm, comfortable, and the opticians are always ready to provide personalized customer support to help patients find the perfect pair of frames. Patients will enjoy a casual, family-friendly shopping experience as they browse a wide selection of optical frames and sunglasses—plus a fully stocked optical dispensary is conveniently ready to service patients.

 

About the opening

The ODs will work 40 hours a week, four days a week, plus one Saturday per month, and will be expected to provide emergency on-call coverage. For the right candidate, a future partnership opportunity may be available.
