Optometrist - Full Time - Private Practice - Great Falls, MT
Open to experienced ODs or new grads! We will provide mentorship and training!
About Our Practice
We are a privately owned optometric practice that was founded by two very experienced optometrists. We have been established in the Great Falls area for many years. Our current location, right down the road from the airport, has been up and running for about 5 years and we have a great book of patients that is consistently growing due to our word of mouth referrals, referrals from medical clinics, and our convenient location for walk-in appointments. We use the latest technology to provide comprehensive eye care exams, contact lens fittings, Lasik co-management, cataract eye surgery co-management and a wide variety of eyewear options. We see the full spectrum of patient populations from pediatrics to adults and elderly patients. Our practice does provide a great opportunity for our doctors to build up specialty services that we do not currently offer.
Our friendly and professional team is made up of multiple optometrists, opticians, technicians, front desk admins and our office manager, who is fully certified in all positions and also handles patient billing. Our technicians complete a full patient workup so that exams can be as efficient and focused as possible, and we also have opticians on staff to handle our 1,000+ selection of frames in our optical side. Our glasses are produced in our lab in Helena. We provide dedicated exam rooms and office space for each of our optometrists. Our office has 8 fully equipped exam lanes that are ready to go with equipment including:
- Humphrey Visual Fields
- Humphrey Topographer
- CLARUS HD Widefield Camera
- Zeiss Cirrus OCT
- Humphrey Auto Refractor
- Topcon Autorefractor
- Non-contact tonometers
