Pre-registration placement 2023-24 South East Apply by 28 February 2023

About the practice

Lymington is a new store, opening in October 2022. New Milton is a longstanding successful practice with a great track record with pre-regs and experiences support staff. New Milton is a quiet seaside town, Lymington is a beautiful town in the heart of the new forest. Both locations are very close to each other. Both practices are part of Wessex Optical, who currently own 6 Boots Opticians Franchises. We are looking for a pre-reg to join September 2023 and work between both branches. The successful pre-reg candidate will have support from their supervisor, as well as Pre-reg lead for the company, J&J STEP courses, Boots Opticians training courses and Wessex Optical training courses. The stores are well equipped with OCT including OCT angiography, henson fields, autorefractor-keratometer-pachymeter and phoropters. Both stores have great links with Ophthalmology, with Lymington running in-store ophthalmology clinics and specialist dry eye clinics.

The successful candidate will initially work on their dispensing competencies while testing patients ad-hoc without time limit, before moving to booked clinics 3 times a week. Further in to the pre-reg, if test rooms are available, the pre-reg will be testing 5 days a week. This exciting role allows testing in two different practices resulting in a varied exposure to different populations, working in an established practice with a good track record with pre-regs in New Milton and working alongside private ophthalmology clinics in Lymington.
