Job Description

It would be necessary to work with 4th year externs. Typically we have 2 externs from (ICO/SCCO/IU) at the clinic every rotation and CCLIM utilizes "super techs" as tech/scribe in addition to 4 year students working in the clinic. Position would include significant keratoconus, scleral lens fitting, all forms of myopia control and dry eye patients. Specialty lens appointments will consist of over 50% of your scheduled visits per day. Generally, a moderate amount of primary care/soft contact lenses and very few glasses will be the norm at this position. New grads/residents encouraged to apply.

Position as the potential to be full time if applicant is interested in partnering with a nearby clinic a few days a week. Likely this would be strictly primary care.
