Institutional Eye Care

Institutional Eye Care is seeking one or more optometrists to work as part-time subcontractors in various Tennessee DOC facilities, to provide routine eye exams. Scheduling is extremely flexible to accommodate most schedules, with the majority of locations needing fewer than 4 visits per month. Each facility is fully equipped, so there is no need to transport equipment back and forth.

 Compensation is a guaranteed minimum of $400 per half day, ~4 hours, with the potential to exceed $500 depending how many patients are seen. A full day of work, ~8 hours, is compensated as a guaranteed minimum of $800 with the potential to exceed $900.

 This is an excellent opportunity for anyone looking to fill their schedule with a few extra days per month, such as new graduates, semi-retirees, or anyone looking to add supplemental income from a part time position. This position in no way competes with any private practice obligations to patients, as all patients are seen on-site at the facilities.

 The facilities and approximate frequency are as follows:

Henning, TN (north of Memphis): 3-4 visits per month

Memphis, TN: 1 Visit per month

Pikeville, TN 3-4 visits per month
