Optometrist - Full-time - Medically-Oriented Private Practice - Newark, DE
*Recent grads and experienced optometrists are encouraged to apply!
At Vision Center of Delaware, we practice therapeutic, full-scope medical, and primary care optometry. We are seeking a full-time doctor that has a desire to practice to the full extent of their license at our growing practice. The ideal candidate is an OD that shares the same love for optometry that Dr. Farrall has so that they can carry on her legacy and take over the practice in the future. This is a perfect opportunity for a hard-working individual looking for engaging work in a fun environment and the opportunity to oversee their own practice!
What You’ll Need:
- Doctor of Optometry (O.D.) Degree (or pending)
- Valid DE state license to practice optometry (for recent grads, can help fulfill 6-month DE internship requirement)
Why Work Here?
Environment: You will gain exposure to a wide range of eye care and vision needs in our full-scope practice with an emphasis on medical optometry. At our practice, our doctors have the opportunity to do everything from providing comprehensive eye care for all ages, to screening, managing, and co-managing common ocular diseases such as anterior segment, glaucoma, cataracts, diabetic disease, macular degeneration, and retinal disorders. We also provide pre and post-operative co-management care of surgical patients. We have three full lanes of equipment to ensure that our doctors can provide their best care, as well as a customized EHR (officemate), Humphrey VF, Cirrus OCT 5000, and Zeiss Clarus Ultra Wide Field Retinal Photography.
Growth & Partnership: Are you looking to grow your career? This position includes the potential for full or partial ownership of the practice! This practice has been serving the community and providing quality eyes for 80 years in Newark, so this is an excellent opportunity to take over a practice with a fantastic reputation in the community. Likewise, Dr. Farrall truly cares about her patients and doesn't rush appointments to ensure that the patient gets their due time and the doctors offer their due diligence. This is the perfect place to develop your skills, change lives, and focus on what is most important to you--providing care. To this end, our doctors are not required to sell at all--our fantastic upscale optical boutique is well staffed and partnered with Enchroma (for color deficiency) to expand our services.
Schedule: We value work-life balance - no weekends! Your work week will feature half days on Fridays as well! In addition, Dr. Farrall knows the importance of patient scheduling in maintaining an efficient workday and offering quality service, therefore, only 8 to 10 patients are scheduled for the doctors daily, and a technician does the patient work-up!
Compensation & Benefits:
We offer a competitive salary, commensurate with experience. Benefits include Paid Time Off and employer matched IRA plan. A 6-month internship can also be done through our practice!
Why You’ll Love Our Location:
The Vision Center of Delaware is located on Main Street in Newark, a city consistently expanding and growing, and being in a centralized location on Main Street offers a big opportunity for our thriving business. We are centrally located in the heart of our town, just steps away from the University of Delaware, and the city of Newark is centrally positioned roughly halfway between Philadelphia and Baltimore; less than a mile south of where DE, MD, and PA intersect. This location has a perfect small-town, tax-free atmosphere, with easy access to both large metropolitan and beach areas.
