Associate OD Opportunity

Come live your dream vacation in Alaska! Hike mountains in solitude! See moose in your backyard! Eat the freshest fish that you can find! Visit a glacier! 

Alaska Eye Care Centers is currently hiring for an Associate OD position. Founded in 1937, we are Alaska’s longest-standing optometric practice, priding ourselves in staying at the cutting edge of patient care. We have two locations, one in Anchorage, a town with a population around 300,000, and a satellite office located in Wasilla in the Mat-Su Valley about 45 minutes North of Anchorage with a population of 110,000. In our multi-disciplinary office, we see a variety of patients from 6-month-old infants to centenarians. We specialize in complex contact lens cases, see all types of ocular pathology, co-manage surgical cases with some of Alaska’s best surgeons, and practice full-scope optometry to the highest level of training allowed by state law. Our highly trained staff are ready to assist you with patient care, including an on-site lab and optical with over 3,000 frames and accessories.

Here at Alaska Eye Care Centers, we believe in a healthy work-life balance and self-growth. We believe in helping each other through the difficult cases and communication. We believe in ourselves and our staff and providing patient-centric ocular healthcare. We believe in good products and good service. We believe that you will help make us better.

So who should apply? Ideally, we are looking for someone interested in a full-time position primarily based at our Wasilla location with coverage at our Anchorage office as needed. Residency trained candidates or doctors with prior experience are preferred, although new graduates are encouraged to apply. A current Alaska optometric license is a must. Certification in advanced ophthalmic procedures and LASERs is highly preferable. And probably most importantly, someone who is looking for a career, not just a job.

If this sounds like it would be a fun career for you, please send your resume to jobs@alaskaeyecare.com. We look forward to hearing from you.
