You will have some control of your diary in conjunction with the managers input as and when required with working hours between 09:00 – 17:30.

You will conduct 25 minute tests as well as completing contact lens fittings and aftercare. You will be on hand to offer clinical advice and help patients to choose the best options for their needs.
