As an Optometrist with this Domiciliary company, your role is very different from the norm in retail practice. You will have clinical freedom and the variation of getting out and about visiting patients, mainly within their home environments. With no evening or weekend work, you will be accompanied by an experienced dispenser who will support you throughout your clinics, allowing you to focus on the sight test and patient.

This company is all about empowering its own staff and coaching them to develop and think for themselves, enabling them to really help elderly and vulnerable adults with their eye care needs. This is a challenging but rewarding role where you will be part of a team helping vulnerable patients.
