What Our Patients Say

The staff is extremely professional and the doctor is very knowledgeable. He explains everything and is very patient. I recommend them to everyone.

Joe W.

Love love love Dr Joe! He takes the time to explain everything, and answer every question I come up with. I never feel rushed, rare these days. Opticians are the best, too. Friendly and they really know their stuff.

Mark B.

Great exam. Great selection of frames. Thoughtful customer experience! Definitely recommend!

Elizabeth G.

Optik extended themselves to me to work me in for an eye exam, phoning me with the offer of an earlier opening in the schedule. They carry beautiful, high end eyewear and provide an in- house lab for same hour lens service after an eye exam. I am literally “over the moon happy” with my improved vision and the terrific service provided by Optik.

Vintage and Designer Eyewear

People have been using glass lenses of some type or another to improve their vision for more than seven centuries. As eyeglasses have evolved from early handheld devices to the familiar framed styles you see today, the materials, craftsmanship, and variation in design have evolved, as well.

At Optik Birmingham in Birmingham, Michigan, Joe Ales, OD has created a carefully curated selection of vintage and contemporary designer eyewear for the discerning eye. To learn more, call or request an appointment online today.
