Highly-respected multispecialty group in Central Connecticut seeks an additional fellowship-trained Cornea/Anterior Segment surgeon to join our well-established practice. Opportunity is available due to combination of practice growth, succession planning and strong regional demand for cornea services. Ideal candidate will primarily possess a strong interest in surgical management of complex cornea cases (PK, DSEK/DMEK, anterior segment neoplasms, etc), management of dislocated IOLs, and complex cataract surgery. Development and growth of a laser vision correction practice will be supported, if desired. Provision of comprehensive ophthalmology services is expected.
Consulting Ophthalmologists, P.C. is a physician-owned practice, currently with 8 fellowship-trained MDs and 3 ODs, that has enjoyed a strong presence in central Connecticut for over forty years.

A specialty contact lens service supports our cornea physicians and patients. Surgeries are performed at both hospital-based and ASC-based facilities, with access to LenSx, ORA and Verion systems.
The area, located approximately two hours from both Boston and New York City, boasts excellent public and private schools, highly-rated suburbs in close proximity to museums, arts, professional sports teams and a vibrant restaurant scene, and easy access to a wide variety of recreational opportunities to include biking, kayaking, hiking and skiing.
We are looking for someone to join our collegial team who shares our commitment to providing the highest level of care in a professional, compassionate manner to the patients in our communities. In addition to a competitive salary, we offer an excellent benefits package to include 401(k) plan, profit sharing, professional dues, CME stipend, malpractice insurance as well as medical, dental, life and disability insurance.
