Visiting 12-16 care home residents every day, you'll have longer appointments than you would get on the high street, allowing you time to form better relationships with your patients and deliver gold-standard customer care.
You'll work as a team with an Optical Assistant who will prepare the patients for you and complete the dispenses, allowing you to focus on the clinical side of the eye test and providing the best care for your patient.
We provide equipment that rivals any high street practice, including a digital fundus camera, mobile slit lamp, I-care tonometer, and our industry-leading digital records system, which means no paperwork.
You'll be supported with your CPD, and we will invest in you and give you the time to complete exams if required.
If you are looking for a new challenge and would value the opportunity to join the forefront of domiciliary eye care, then we wou've for you to be part of our journey.
