Vision Therapist (FULL-TIME)
Description

Are you an energetic team player looking for a fulfilling career that changes the lives of children, teens, and adults? Do you enjoy coaching and helping patients improve their daily lives in school, sports, and work performance? If so, please join our team!

About the Position:

As a Vision Therapist, you will play an instrumental role in treating binocular vision dysfunctions for your patients. To do this, you will be addressing each patient with a personalized approach. With this approach, each session is one-on-one (therapist-to-patient), conducted under doctor supervision. During treatment, you and our doctors will apply state-of-the-art technology and procedures, making treatment enjoyable and productive for your patients. You will learn how to use our advanced approach that incorporates coordinated movement, balance, auditory processing, and cognitive abilities. Using this methodology will allow you to treat your patients to develop their visual abilities and improve their daily living in the classroom, the workplace, and in sports.

Your Responsibilities:

As a vision therapist, your responsibilities include:

  • Providing energetic, warm and caring interactions with patients and their families
  • Adhering to and embodying the Wow Vision Therapy patient service standards
  • Maintaining a safe and secure workspace
  • Keeping a clean and orderly office environment
  • Assisting the doctors, administrative team, and fellow therapists to ensure efficiency and productivity

What is Vision Therapy?:

Vision therapy is a rehabilitative program, prescribed to treat developmental and/or neurologically induced dysfunctions of the visual system. The American Optometric Association defines vision therapy as a sequence of neurosensory and neuromuscular activities individually prescribed and monitored by a doctor to develop, rehabilitate, and enhance visual skills and processing.

Treatment Areas:

Hundreds of healthcare professionals turn to Wow Vision Therapy as their West Michigan referral center for children, teens and adults presenting with vision conditions such as amblyopia, convergence insufficiency/double vision, see-sick syndrome, post-concussion vision syndrome, strabismus, or vision and learning problems. We also provide vision treatment for developmentally delayed individuals or individuals on the autism spectrum, to improve their daily living and learning abilities. Furthermore, we provide sports vision training for athletes.

About Us:

At Wow Vision Therapy, we are a world-class developmental and rehabilitative vision therapy practice. Our doctors, board-certified vision therapists, and staff dedicate each day to helping our patients acquire improved vision abilities. In doing so, we deliver innovative optometric vision therapy through the principles of neuroscience. After treatment, our patients obtain significantly improved vision, academic abilities, and eye-hand coordination. These improvements empower our patients', instill a greater sense of confidence, and improve daily life skills.

Qualifications

This is an entry-level position, no vision therapy training is necessary. At Wow Vision Therapy, we train all of our vision therapists to meet our high level of treatment standards. Once fully integrated, we will help you through the certification process, as we strongly encourage certification (we cover training and certification fees). As a Board-Certified Vision Therapist, you will be a leader in the Vision Therapy field!

We are looking for someone willing to learn how to help or direct people of all ages; however, most of our patients are children and teens.

Strong candidates are:

  • Devoted to continued education and interest in visual development
  • Able to build a one-on-one rapport with patients
  • Have excellent people skills
  • Possess a patient-focused mindset with a friendly and outgoing personality
