We are seeking a full-time Low Vision Optometrist for our Low Vision Clinic at a non-profit in Sacramento, CA. Essential functions are to conduct low vision evaluations, provide follow-up eye care and make appropriate referrals for vision and blindness rehabilitation services. Doctors of Optometry who specialize in low vision rehabilitation are skilled in the examination, treatment and management of patients with visual impairments not fully treatable by medical, surgical or conventional eyewear or contact lenses. Each type of low vision problem requires a different therapeutic approach.
Qualifications: Completed four years of professional education at an accredited college of optometry, leading to the Doctor of Optometry (O.D.) degree. In addition, the ideal candidate will have completed an optional residency in a specific area of practice, particularly low vision and vision rehabilitation or ocular disease (preferred but not required).
