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.

One of the most legendary and storied neighborhoods of Birmingham is Woodlawn. It is a community, anchored by one of the great public high schools of Birmingham, that has produced many citizens who contributed to the life of our city and has had an impact beyond the neighborhood itself. In a short post like this true justice cannot be done to the rich heritage and legacy of Woodlawn. However, we hope that this narrative brings together many of the diverse threads that make up the fabric of the community’s historic arc in a concise piece.
Woof, woof! I’ve been having an absolute blast visiting my sister in Downtown Birmingham. I can hardly wait to share all the details with you once you return from your vacation.
