Rare Opportunity! Avoid Burnout!

CustomEYES Optometry in Tillsonburg Ontario is looking for a full time associate beginning September 1st, 2024 (possibly sooner). One of our associates is unfortunately moving out of the area.

Why work 5 days a week when you can work 4 days a week? I learned many years ago that you can easily burnout working 5 days per week. We have a very mentally draining profession. You will be an independent contractor and will be GENEROUSLY remunerated based on a percentage of the gross revenue you generate.

We offer:

  • Brand new large and modern clinic built in 2017
    • Autorefractor, NCT, CCT (combo unit)
    • OCT
    • Humphrey field analyzer
    • Automated phoroptor (or manual if you prefer)
    • Auto-lensometers
    • Large dispensary with lots of sunglasses too!
    • Excellent patient loyalty
    • High dispensing rates
    • Free onsite parking 50 feet from the door so no weather to contend with!
    • Oh and great friendly staff!

Tillsonburg is:

  • 65 minutes to School of Optometry.
    • 35 minutes to London
    • 90 minutes to Pearson Airport

Tillsonburg has lots to offer:

  • Community Centre (with two hockey rinks)
    • Leagues: baseball, hockey, squash, basketball, volleyball, golf, soccer, and more!
    • Bike and walking trails
    • Lots of close golf courses (within 10 minutes)
    • Local produce stands/farms
    • Kayaking
    • Several Gyms
    • Spas
    • Movie theatre
    • Tons of family businesses to support
    • and much more

Tillsonburg is a very well kept and clean community. Everywhere you go you will find friendly people who are always willing to help you. It offers great schools, lots of kid friendly activities and housing is SIGNIFICANTLY less than in Toronto! With a population of about 19,000, it is big enough to have everything you need right here. There are NEVER traffic jams and you can get to the clinic from anywhere in town in less than 10 minutes. You will be rewarded with a very high quality of life when you don’t spend your day commuting. You will have more time for things like: cooking nutritious meals, your family and your hobbies/interests.

A little about me (Dr. Nelles):

  • I graduated in 2003 from UW School of Optometry
    • I participate in the externship program
    • I grew up in Tillsonburg
    • I love hockey and golf (former varsity goalie at UW)
    • I love woodworking and have a YouTube channel to share it

If this sounds like what you are looking for or you would like to try something new, please contact me so we can talk. We can easily arrange a meeting time so I can show you the clinic and the area in person.
