Job Description Peel Vision www.peelvision.com.au is seeking the services of an experienced full-time orthoptist to join our dynamic and busy ophthalmology practice.

We are a modern and well-equipped practice, with a friendly and professional team providing ophthalmic care to the rapidly growing Peel region and surrounding areas. Our ethos is to provide an accessible, affordable and comprehensive service to the highest standards, with compassion and respect. We have a reputation for going the extra mile for our patients. Our Doctor, Dr Then, has a special interest in cataract and lens-refractive surgery, and oculoplastic surgery.

Orthoptist duties include:

tonometry, OCT, fields, corneal topography, wavefront aberrometry, wide-field retina scanning, and clinical photographs for oculoplastic cases.

* Performing an independent biometry clinic for IOL calculations

*Clinical duties including assistance with intravitreal injection clinics, minor oculoplastic procedures, contact lens trials and postoperative review/counselling.

Training in the above will be provided, and experienced orthoptists as well as fresh graduates are encouraged to apply. Refraction skills and experience
with slit lamp bio-microscopy is desirable but not necessary. We are a

* Excellent communication and interpersonal skills, and the ability to cope with challenging patients and situations

* A strong work ethic with high levels of self-motivation

* Diligence, reliability, enthusiasm, and a willingness to learn and contribute to the growth and promotion of the practice

We offer supportive management, a friendly workplace and a commitment to your ongoing education and professional development. We will offer generous remuneration to the right candidate. Current rostered hours are 35-37 hours per week, with time off when the doctor is in theatre. We have easy on-site parking, and a uniform is provided.
