Why you should apply
Dr. Barry Leonard and Associates has served five generations of families and is well-respected for its advanced expertise in keratoconus management.

On average, 16 comprehensive eye exams are performed daily, as well as 2-4 contact lens check-ups and/or office visits. Technician support is available throughout exams, utilizing up-to-date diagnostic equipment – enabling you to focus on patient-centered care.

The practice is seeking to fill a part-time position, and is expected to lead to a full-time opportunity. The ideal candidate will be ambitious, responsible, service-oriented, community-involved, and willing to integrate new techniques and innovations that improve patient care.

Minimum qualifications include:
