Announcing an exciting opportunity for a recently graduated optometrist to leap into direct professional experience with Western Massachusetts’ best-known and most respected ophthalmic practice.

Dr. Nancy Balin is seeking an optometrist ready to learn to deliver top-quality primary eye care in general optometry, ocular disease, pre- & post-operative surgical care, and dry eye treatment. In the setting of a bustling, multifaceted organization, you will gain first-hand knowledge and experience with:

  • Dry eye treatments including Lipiflow and IPL
  • Pre- and post-op Lasik patient care
  • Pre- and post-op cataract patient care
  • Cataract surgery options, including premium IOLs and laser-assisted technology

One of our ODs once said it best:

I learned more in my first three months with Balin Eye & Laser Center than I learned during my entire fellowship.

Dr. Balin’s expertise and dedication to quality medical care has earned her widespread recognition as a pioneer and leader in vision correction. Dr. Balin was the first surgeon in western MA to perform Lasik and has performed over 8,000 procedures to date.

Balin Eye & Laser Center is a complete facility which includes seven eye lanes, an on-site Lasik surgical suite, and minor procedure suites, nestled in the beautiful Pioneer Valley of western Massachusetts: a five-college, multicultural region abound with outdoor activities, natural beauty, culture, and arts – all an easy drive to Boston, New York City, and the mountains and lakes of Vermont, New Hampshire, and the Berkshires.

Salary and benefits are competitive. This is a preferred full-time position, but part-time hours are negotiable. For more information regarding this opportunity, please contact Practice Manager Susan Parent at [email protected] or (413) 348-7800.
