Northern Valley Eye Care is seeking a full-time optometrist who shares our vision for patient-centered eye care.  We are a premier private practice located in beautiful northern Vermont.  We are nestled in the northern end of Lake Champlain, 25 minutes from Burlington, 45 & 55 minutes from two popular ski resorts (respectively) and 60 minutes from Montreal. 

Our newly constructed 6,000 square foot facility is the largest independent optometric office in the state and outfits a large support staff of 16 including 5 certified paraoptometrists and 2 opticians.  We use chair-side assistants to aid the doctor during the exam and perform delegated tasks.  We co-manage LASIK and cataract surgery patients.  Our office space consists of 3 pre-testing rooms, 8 fully-stocked exam rooms, a contact lens suite, separate doctor’s offices, staff lounge, optical lab and a fairly large dispensary (>1,000 frames).  Our equipment includes and Optos Daytona retinal camera, Cirrus HD-OCT,  Zeiss/Humphrey Visual Fields Analyzer, wireless Heine BIO’s, and various standard devices.

We practice full-scope primary care optometry.  While we fit monthly SCL’s, RGP’s and specialty lenses, the majority of our contact lens patients wear daily disposable lenses. 

St. Albans is a historic gem in northern Vermont.  The area boasts many opportunities to balance work and play and is particularly suited for outdoor enthusiasts.  Enjoy skiing, hiking, biking, kayaking, paddle-boarding, camping, hunting, fishing, boating, sailing, gardening, maple-sugaring, leaf-peeping and much more!  Vermont is a quintessential four-season state.

We offer a generous compensation including health insurance and 401k plan.  We cover Vermont licensing, malpractice insurance, CME costs, VOA and AOA membership dues.  Our CME venues range from Vision East in New York City to Vision West in Las Vegas.  We work 4 ½ days/week during the ‘school year’ and 4 slightly-longer days/week during the summer (aka 3-day weekends!).  If you are a dynamic team player with an interest joining our team, we look forward to hearing from you.  You can reach Dr. Steven St. Marie directly by his cell number at (802)-309-4947.  Please send a cover letter and resume by email to or by fax at (802) 524-6060.
