About the practice

Romsey is a new store having opened its doors in January 2022. Romsey was the 5th practice of 6 to be part of Wessex Optical, a franchise group of Boots Opticians. Romsey is a picturesque old market town, with good transport links and close to Southampton City and the New Forest. We are looking for a pre-reg to start September 2023. An exciting opportunity to work in a new concept store - with on-site ophthalmology clinics, dry eye clinics and well equipped with OCT, humphrey fields, autorefractor-keratometer-pachymeter and phoropters, as well as new high fashion frame brands. 

The role would initially be planned as starting with dispensing competencies and testing patients ad-hoc with no time limit. This would then move to gradually more booked clinics, with the goal being 5 days a week testing further in to the pre-reg year as long as testing rooms are available. There is also the opportunity in this role to work alongside in-store private ophthalmology clinics to broaden learning. 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 ideal candidate would be willing to occasionally work in Lymington as well, though this is not essential.
