Our Support Network

Mentorship Program & Continuing Education

New doctors who join National Vision are assigned to an Area Doctor for mentorship and guidance, as well as invited to orientation at our Retail Support Center outside of Atlanta, GA, run by our Clinical Director, Doctor peers and the Professional Services team. The orientation takes place after 30 days on the job, enabling them to ask questions and learn best practices. Colleagues met through this process often stay in touch year after year, creating a strong support system. Employed and affiliated National Vision Doctors of Optometry also have the opportunity to attend a yearly, all-expenses paid, company-wide continuing education event to earn all credits required at once, while having the opportunity to network with peers.

Our Area Doctors

When an Optometrist is hired at National Vision, each Doctor is also mentored by one of our Area Doctors. It’s important that our Doctors are immediately welcomed with a mentor who can offer help with joining a new company, answer any questions and offer advice.

To ensure that our Doctors are always performing to a high standard, our Area Doctors help with our company review process by conducting peer reviews, auditing charts and observing our Doctors performing eye exams. The following Area Doctors help National Vision create a strong network of peers that fosters professional development across the country.

"NVI allows me to do what I do best, provide stellar patient care with state of the art equipment in a full scope primary care setting. Being part of the growth of a company that is highly dedicated to their doctor network and the care that we provide for our patients has been such a rewarding experience for me. With the support of our Area Doctor network and corporate management team, we are able to provide our patients with the care they deserve at a very affordable price, making eye care accessible to those who might not receive it otherwise. I look at it not just as a job, but a career I thoroughly enjoy."
