FYidoctors - Nanaimo is looking for a Full Time Optometrist wanted four days per week for a permanent position at our dynamic and forward-looking practice in in Nanaimo, BC. We have a long-established full scope primary care practice offering the full breadth of optometric services. We are a founding member of FYi with a strong belief in the benefit of cooperative business planning with our peers across the country. We continue to grow and look forward to welcoming a new OD to our family.

Practice:

We are a dynamic and forward-looking practice in the central island region of Vancouver Island. We have six ODs among three offices which are open Monday to Saturday. We have two late days where we close at 6:00, otherwise our office hours are 8:00 to 5:00. All our ODs currently work 4 days per week. We have an additional OD available to fill in for holidays and other absences. Our practice features two past presidents of the BCDO and a past treasurer. Our practice in Nanaimo was established in 1919 by Dr. Stan Morrison and we have grown over the past 25 years to serve all the central Island.

Equipment/Specialities:

We have always been committed to practicing at the leading edge of eyecare in our province. At each location we have Optomap Widefield imaging, Medmont Visual Fields and OCTs (Zeiss or Nidek). In Nanaimo we have a Medmont topographer and anterior segment photography. In Ladysmith we have meibomography and Tear Lab for our dry eye clinic. We offer a full range of therapeutic contact lenses included sclerals and hybrids for keratoconus, astigmatism, and presbyopia. We have long standing relationships with most refractive laser and private cataract surgeons to provide surgical co-management. We offer vision therapy services for learning related vision conditions and neuro-optometric rehabilitation for post-concussion and TBI patients, as well as low vision assessments and supportive devices.

Location:

Nanaimo is a community of 90,000 on the east side of Vancouver Island. Recreation and lifestyle are benefits that set us apart from other locations. Boating opportunities are among the best in the world. Sailing, kayaking, windsurfing, and kite surfing are year-round activities with our mild climate. We have hundreds of kilometers of hiking and biking trails within our regional district and several local riders compete for Canada on international mountain biking circuits. Mount Washington is just an hour away, offering skiing, boarding, snow shoeing and cross-country skiing on an average snowbase of 300 cm. There are few places in Canada that you can golf one day and ski the next all within a short drive from home! Additionally, Victoria is a 90 minute drive and Vancouver is a 20 minute float-plane ride away which provides easy access to the activities and amenities both of these cities offer!
