Our mission at Clearview Family Eyecare is to promote a lifetime of healthy vision. Fortunately, advances in contact lens technology have made safe and comfortable contact lens use possible for more people than ever before.

Featured Testimonial"The last time I got my eyes dilated I fainted and have had bad anxiety about the optometrist ever since. I can say Dr Seth Salley and his staff took great care of me (no fainting this time) and got me in the day after I called and needed an appointment. If you're looking for an optometrist go here!"
Overheard at Clearview (FAQ)Q: Why is the contact lens evaluation separate from the routine exam?
A: Not everyone wears contact lenses. So there is a routine exam, which involves all of the refractive and health tests for the eyes and body, then there is a separate contact lens portion. This part of the exam involves putting contacts on the eye, checking the fit and health of the eye related to the lenses, the trial lenses and sample solutions and any follow up care that may be needed. There is a separate fee for this portion of the exam.
