Morris Avenue Eyecare has officially relocated to their new office at the historic 2229 Morris Avenue. Dr. Valencia Wells has invested more than $250,000 to acquire and renovate the new space and relocate sensitive eye exam equipment.
It was important to Dr. Wells that she remain in the city of Birmingham, and downtown in particular, to continue providing service to the residents and workers in the area. Her staff includes three full-time employees and three part-time employees.
Morris Avenue Eyecare is open Monday through Thursday from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. and includes a retail shop for frame supplies and repairs.
REV partnered with Dr. Wells to assist with parking and is currently helping pursue incentives with partners at the City of Birmingham.
