Serve visually impaired Veterans as a VA optometrist


Optometry is an essential part of VA, especially since there are more than one million visually impaired Veterans over the age of 45 in the United States. That’s why it’s important for us to raise awareness of our services as well as our career opportunities in the field.

From primary to advanced care, we provide a wide range of eye treatment options. This includes comprehensive low-vision rehabilitation services that help patients enhance skills such as communication, orientation and mobility. Through these offerings and more, we’re improving the lives of Veterans nationwide—and we invite you to consider doing the same as a VA optometrist.

You’ll be part of a collaborative team environment with access to inspirational leaders and the latest technology, helping you perform at your best every day while continually growing as a professional. You will also be recognized for your achievements and rewarded in many ways, including outstanding benefits such as generous paid time off, flexible scheduling and other perks that support a healthy work-life balance. Above all, you’ll enjoy the unmatched fulfillment that comes with serving patients who’ve served our country.
