Greetings Independent Optometrists
My name is Ewuvonka T. Flournoy and I serve as the Regional Talent Specialist for Walmart and Sam’s Club. I am very pleased to share some information with you about Wal-Mart Vision Centers. The concept of full-scope optometry is alive and well at Wal-Mart Vision Centers. We agree with optometrists that they should focus their skills and knowledge on solving their patients’ vision and health problems, not the number of eyeglasses and contacts per week.
Walmart Health & Wellness has exciting Full-Time and Part-Time Practice opportunities for Independent & Salaried Associate Optometrists. Growth opportunities, advanced technology and everything else you need to take control of your career in Optometry. We’re helping the world see better. And it starts with you. Your practice. Your rewards. Our Independent Optometrists find value like never before when they team up with Walmart/Sam’s Club Health & Wellness. Today, we’ve paired up with over 3,000 Doctor Partners to develop successful practices. You’ll start with a potential median patient base of up to 3,000 – which comes with some serious earning potential. Our independent practitioners have a gross median income of $155,000 nationwide, with the top 20% of practices averaging $345,000 in income.
While your practice will be yours as an Independent Optometrist – with staffing, scheduling and other management decisions solely in your hands – you won’t be in it alone. Beyond a patient base built out of approximately 25,000 weekly customers, we’ll provide you with the latest technology and state-of-the-art instrumentation. By helping you thrive from the very beginning, we’re keeping our promise to our customers by providing them high-quality, affordable eye care.
We know how important real work/life balance is, and it can be hard to maintain when you’re starting a practice by yourself. That’s why we provide flexibility in managing your business
– including no blackout dates for vacation and the ability to use fill-in doctors. It also extends to Doctor Partners who decide to leave for any reason. We just require a 60-day advanced notice, no questions asked.
It Is YOUR Practice! Be Your Own Boss - Set your own fees, schedules and patient flow (how many patients you see hourly).
Practice Full-Scope Optometry - No one will dictate how you practice - you are the Doctor and the Expert, the company respects that and will support you.
