Looking Glass Eye Center, P.A. is recruiting a medical ophthalmologist, optometrist, or possibly an oculoplastics specialist to join our busy practice of 4 ophthalmologists and 1 optometrist. We currently have a medical ophthalmologist who will be retiring soon, so a new associate would immediately inherit an established patient base with room for even more growth. This would likely be a part-time position working 3-4 days per week. However, there is some flexibility to the number of days and hours worked per week, as we are open to working with your wishes and needs. This position would primarily be for comprehensive eye care, but we also have lots of oculoplastics and think an oculoplastics specialist who is willing to do some comprehensive work would also potentially work very well.
Our practice is congenial with a collegial atmosphere. Currently, we have 2 corneal specialists, a glaucoma specialist, and a medical retina specialist, as well as an optometrist. We see a wide range of patients and pathology and provide a full range of medical and surgical services using the latest technology. Each office is fully equipped and staffed 5 days a week. A full service optical is located in each office.
Our two offices are located in beautiful Brevard and Hendersonville, NC. We have about 45 full-time staff – most of whom have been with the practice for 5-10+ years, many much longer. Our low turnover and good staff benefits such as a 401K plan support a friendly and motivated office environment.
The Asheville /Brevard / Hendersonville area is a beautiful place to live, especially for a family. Four distinct seasons; numerous outdoor activities; access to state parks, lakes, rivers and mountains; excellent public and private schools all make this area attractive. Low crime, little traffic, a thriving music, arts and crafts scene, festivals and innovative restaurants add to the quality of life. People travel from all over the country to visit the place that we are fortunate to call home.
The Asheville airport and an easy drive to Charlotte, NC or Greenville, SC make for accessible flights to any destination. Our demographics include a growing senior population (area is consistently ranked a top location for retirees) and increasing economic growth along the Interstate 26 corridor south of Asheville.
Housing options are abundant ranging from planned suburban neighborhoods to urban lofts to rural homes. An associate could live in either Brevard, Hendersonville or Asheville and enjoy an easy commute.
Our practice is patient-focused. Strong interpersonal skills, a commitment to high ethical and moral standards and excellence in diagnosis and management are expected.
