We are thrilled to have “Around Town” sponsored by our partners at Callahan Eye Hospital & Clinics.

UAB’s Callahan Eye Hospital in downtown Birmingham has served our region with excellence for the past 50 years. Callahan is the gold standard for eye care in our state, but did you know you don’t have to travel to downtown to receive their top-notch care?

In order to provide service to more people, Callahan has more than 15 clinic locations, complete with easy parking and same-day appointments that offer: 

  • Adult and pediatric eye and vision care
  • Eye exams
  • Eyeglasses and contact lenses
  • Cataract evaluations
  • Glaucoma screenings
  • Neuro-ophthalmology 
  • Oculoplastics
  • Cornea services
  • Advanced diagnostic imaging
  • In-house optical store featuring designer brands

With staff ready to treat both children and adults, you can make plans for your whole family. Same-day appointments are available, and walk-in patients are accepted.

Callahan Eye Hospital & Clinics is a trusted partner, and we can assure you your family is in great hands with them.
