We forgive you for being distracted. We get it if you don’t hear us welcome you. After all, there’s a lot to take in … the handsome vintage display cases and sleek modern fixtures, for starters. And the frames. The newest, must-have, hard-to-find designer frames, and a lovingly curated collection of vintage eyewear. Your eyes dart around the showroom, your heart might even beat a little faster. You simply want everything … every frame, every accessory … shops like this are rare. But you found us, and we’re glad you’re here. The “we” being Dr. Joe Ales, OD, and his team of doctors and eyewear consultants.
Beyond the exceptional collection of eyewear, though, OPTIK Birmingham also offers exceptional general and preventative eye care. And, of course, a comfortable spot to stop in, say “hi” and sit for a bit, leafing through the magazines and listening to jazz … there’s always something new to see.
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.
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.
Great exam. Great selection of frames. Thoughtful customer experience! Definitely recommend!
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.
Exclusive Designer and Vintage Eyewear
Some of us are clearly focused on the now … and with an eye toward the future. Others, though, take inspiration from the past. Both visions are exceptional. So that’s why our optical boutique carries exclusive designer frames and one of the country’s largest collections of original vintage eyewear. Brands from around the world, handcrafted with thoughtful details, and those you remember from decades before. Some you’ll recognize. Others, well, you’ll be glad you discovered them. Right here, and only here.
