Feel like product quality is letting you down? Tired of speaking to dissatisfied patients? Then consider a move to Optical Express.

If your current employer simply isn’t making the grade, then we can help. From superb designer glasses to refractive surgery, Optical Express is setting the standards for our industry. If the superior products and service excellence which are important to you aren’t being provided in your current role, then it could be time to make the break and move from the ordinary to the exceptional.

As an Optical Express employee you’ll discover that we’re focused firmly on being best in class each and every time. It’s that focus which has seen us become the number one provider of private refractive surgery in the UK. High level partnerships with some of the leaders in optical technology, instantly-recognisable designer glasses brands and our comprehensive learning and development focus make us unique, and so the opportunities for our optometrists are too.

Just as we want to make our patients’ poor vision history, we want to make standard sight tests a thing of the past for our optometrists. Whether it’s our in-house CET events, our fully-funded Independent Prescribing course in partnership with Glasgow Caledonian University or ophthalmologist shadow days, our focus is firmly on ensuring our optometrists enjoy a fulfilling and stimulating working environment.
