We count ourselves as being fortunate to be operating within one of the most challenging and rewarding sectors within the Optometry industry.
Domiciliary eye care is an area which many may not even consider during their career, but it is one which more and more Opticians are starting to turn to as they seek a more fulfilling way to work.
Fulfillment is an important basic need for any profession, it is what gets us out of bed in the morning and motivates us to do a good job.
Working with Visioncall offers you something different than the usual, and can provide a path and opportunity to fulfill and better reward you within the Optometry industry.
Life as a Visioncall Optician will see you go out into the world and visit people in their homes, delivering sight tests within a private setting to assist those most in need of care.
It means each and every day is different, meeting new people in a different part of your local area.
Domiciliary can offer you an unrivaled level of variety most positions couldn’t dream of offering and is certainly one of the major perks of taking your career down this path within the industry.
Our Opticians, many who have made the same transition to domiciliary, all agree that they enjoy the variety of setting and flexibility offered in their role.
As opposed to a high street practice, where you will work with patients who don’t require the same extra care, in domiciliary you will deliver eye care to people who cannot get to a standard practice and may be living with some form of dementia, learning difficulties or physical disabilities.
Those who work in domiciliary will possess the ability to communicate effectively and deliver a sight test in a manner which meets their individual needs.
For many of the people we help, they are elderly and living with some form of dementia.
This can make it very difficult for them to communicate and engage, and as such we make sure all of our Opticians undergo training to ensure they remain dementia-friendly and sensitive to the person’s needs.
At Visioncall we take care of our Opticians to give them the support they need to make this a reality.
Above all else we make sure our staff can come to work each day and can simply focus on their jobs without the added pressures of retail.
Rather than a sales-first approach which is prominent in so many high street chains, we focus ourselves on the core reason why we got into the profession in the first place… to help others and make a difference in their life through better vision.
A career with Visioncall can provide you with exactly that, alongside an attractive range of additional benefits of working with us.
We are all about caring first and are proud to have a team of individuals dedicated to making a real difference in someone’s life.
