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.
Doctor Partner Optometrist Opportunities
A Partnership Worth More
Your practice. Your rewards. Our independent Optometrists find value like never before when they team up with Walmart. Today, we’ve paired up with over 1,800 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.
Keeping Autonomy in Focus
While your practice will be yours – 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.
Balance that fits your life
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.
Salaried Optometrist Opportunities
If you decide running your own practice isn’t for you right now, we also offer the opportunity to be employed as a Walmart or Sam’s Club salaried doctor in select locations. You’ll find many of the same exciting possibilities as Doctor Partners (while receiving the same level of support), but you’ll practice in a Walmart-owned Vision Center. These opportunities are available in the following states: PA, MD, MI, IL, WI, MO, MN, NE and NM.
Bring your career into focus
Whether you’re a seasoned Optician or someone seeking an apprenticeship, as part of the eye care team at a Walmart or Sam’s Club, you’ll find yourself with significant responsibility and room to grow. Here, you’ll be a valued medical professional, with duties that extend throughout the eye care appointment – from patient education to pretesting, dispensing eyewear to making adjustments. And with more than 3,000 locations, there’s real opportunity to help people live better.
