Our group offers unrivalled training that allows our team members to further their careers and love what they do.

We encourage personal and professional growth, and sponsor our team members to pursue professional advancement activities regularly. We also participate in yearly National Training Events, when we close the office and engage in workshops and team building activities.

At Focus Eyecare Centre, you do not work FOR us. You work WITH us to serve our patients the best way possible. While we might not be hiring at the moment, we would love to learn more about you and how you could help us advance the care we provide our patients.

Thanks for your interest in working with us!

Focus Eyecare Centre is a modern, independent, busy, full-scope optometry clinic in Edmonds/Burnaby.

We have 2 digital exam lanes and state-of-the-art equipment, including OCT, Daytona Optomap, K5 keratograph, osmolarity testing (ipen and tearlab), iCare IC100, Humphrey VF, Blephex, VR-vision therapy and more.

In addition to comprehensive exams, we offer orthokeratology, scleral lens fitting, vision therapy, advanced dry eye management on-site edging and more. Ophthalmologists and family doctors routinely refer patients to our clinic.

Our team is highly skilled, with licensed opticians and CCOA optometric assistants, and our goal is to serve our patients and provide them with the best experience possible.

We are looking for a motivated, compassionate optometrist who wants to practice at the highest level in a fun, laid-back, patient-centric optometry clinic. We need an associate to work 2 to 3 days/week and gradually transition to a FT position.

We are expanding our excellent team of eye care professionals in our state-of-the-art clinic, and WE WANT YOU TO JOIN US! We are looking for a positive, detail-oriented, proactive candidate to join our three amazing FT opticians.

We offer an on-site edging lab, an excellent selection of frames, a large contact lens fitting area, modern equipment such as a Keratograph5, iVue OCT, Daytona Optomap, Osmolarity testing, Virtual Reality Vision Therapy, Humphrey VF, NIDEK digital phoropter and lensmeter, and much more.

Don’t stress over daily targets, don’t feel forced to offer patients in-house or low quality lenses, don’t feel like a salesperson. Here we believe you are an important member of our team, providing nothing but the best in eyewear services to our patients, without compromising your professional ethics.

Your duties will include mainly frame selection, dispensing, and glasses repairs; but occasionally might include clerical work (booking patients, paperwork, phone calls, etc). You will also be responsible for overseeing the day to day business operation and working directly with our clinic director.

Training will be provided for the right candidate, but this position requires previous experience.

Being positive, easy going, and having great communication skills with our patients is a MUST and this is what will set you apart from the rest. The right candidate must be able to communicate effectively in English, in person and on the phone.

Remuneration is very competitive and based on experience.

All correspondence will be held in absolute confidence. If this opportunity appeals to you, please email your cover letter and resume to us.
