Welcome to ClearView Family EyeCare 

Birmingham Optometrist for Eye Exams & Contact Lenses

Our eye doctor at ClearView Family EyeCare, Dr. John Keriotis, has more than 25 years of experience in providing family eye care to residents in Birmingham and Vestavia. He offers eye health services, eye exams, specialty contacts and glasses. He can even help you if you have cataracts.

Eye Care with Our Birmingham Optometrist

Birmingham eye care starts with a thorough eye health examination that checks for common eye health problems, including cataracts, macular degeneration, dry eye and glaucoma. If you have a chronic disease, including diabetes or high blood pressure, or a family history of high blood pressure and diabetes, our eye doctor will also check your diabetic retinopathy and problems with your retina, macula and optic nerve. Comprehensive exams also check for refractive errors and visual acuity even if you do not wear eyeglasses or contacts. If our eye doctor notices a change in your vision or you need a new prescription for corrective lenses, he will write you one for glasses or contacts or both.

Have You Had Your Annual Eye Exam?

Our Birmingham eye exams for eyeglasses or contact lenses are designed to test your visual acuity to determine if you are developing presbyopia or are nearsighted, farsighted or have astigmatism. An eye exam is much more than a prescription for eyeglasses.

Specialty Contact Lenses in Birmingham

Along with standard hard, soft and astigmatism(toric) contact lenses, our eye doctor offers specialty contact lenses for individuals who have keratoconus, dry eye and Sjogren's Syndrome and certain LASIK surgery complications, including dry eye, problems with the shape of the cornea and haloes around lights at night. Dr. Keriotis is Birmingham’s only certified fitter of WAVE contact lenses. These lenses are custom designed with special mapping software that

Scleral Lenses

Scleral lenses are a special type of rigid contact lens that vaults over the entire cornea. The edges of the lens gently rest on the white part of the eye. The comfort of these lenses rivals that of soft contact lenses. Since the center of the scleral lens does not rest on the cornea, it creates a liquid reservoir between your eye and the lens, which helps reduce dry eye discomfort and aids in correcting vision problems from some LASIK surgery complications. The vaulted shape also ensures a good fit, vision and comfort for individuals with severely irregularly shaped corneas.

Corneal Reshaping

Corneal reshaping (also known as Ortho-K) lenses change the shape of the front of your eye while you sleep. These are custom fitted eye molds that gently reshape your cornea while you sleep. In the morning, you remove your corneal reshaping (Ortho-K) lenses. Due to the new surface shape of your eyes, you will enjoy clear vision all day without the need for eyeglasses or contacts. It’s a great alternative to LASIK surgery.
