Whether you are newly qualified, but wanting to grow at your own pace into a fulfilling post with the support of experienced collegues, or an experienced practitioner wanting a fulfilling career where you voice matters, or a caring part-time or locum optometrist wanting appreciation of your skills as an eye-care practitioner…
a career change to work within Matheson Optometrists in Hampshire is a sound move.

We believe in:-
· A competitive rate of pay to reflect your abilities, including private medical cover & travel expenses.
· A flexible package to suit your individual circumstances

· A career plan that allows you to develop at your pace
· A chance to voice your opinions as to how the group should develop

We have a bonus scheme related to practice and individual performance rather than one related to prescribing/conversion rates. You are free to practice professionally and you do well when we do well.

We believe in encouraging staff development by CET and sharing knowledge with other professionals within the group. We like our optometrists to have MECS (also known as ACES or PEARS) acreditation. If not we can help you get it. We encourage continued professional development, especially in the fields of medical retina, glaucoma and ocular therapeutics. We fit punctal plugs and amniotic membranes where required.

We believe in keeping our patients informed and in additionally to a comprehensive web-site we have a blog, facebook and YouTube channels.

We often participate in charitable visits to deprived countries such as Africa and Eastern Europe where scant eye-care services are available.

Our practices are equiped to the highest standard, having high resolution Digital Retinal and Slit-lamp Photography Systems, Anterior and Posterior OCT imaging, Meibography, Auto-fluorescence, we have Humphrey Visual Field Analysers, Indirect Head-sets, various gonio lenses etc.

This enables us to provide unrivalled clinical care and participate in various co-managed care sevices with Ophthalmologists. We provide glaucoma and Ocular Therapeutics Care through patients private medical insurance in many cases. We provide services to ophthalmology such as OCT scans, Visual Fields follow-ups, Retinal Photography , Dry Eye Management and Intra-Vitreal Injections for macular disease. We fit Chromogen contact lenses to treat colour blindness.

This does not mean that all optometrists in the group are expected to provide these services. We each have our specialisations and we believe in sharing these skills with each other.

If you feel that you would like to practice with the ideals with which you were trained, and would like to further develop your skills in the future, then our group can be the answer. Our group is big enough to offer security and professional development but small enough to allow you to play a significant role in it's evolution as a prestige primary health-care provider in the area.
