Meet the Team

Dr. Carly Rose, Optometrist

Dr. Carly Rose leads a thriving optometry practice, Eyecare on the Square, in Mariemont. Struck by the growing number of dry eye cases in her own office, she focused her own research and continuing education on understanding treatments for what is often a painful and life-changing, yet highly treatable condition. Now recognized in this industry as a leader in dry eye diagnosis and treatment, Dr. Rose continues to stay on the cutting edge of research and technology for this condition. Noting that many cosmetic products and treatments lead to or exacerbate dry eye and that procedures for treating dry eye also have a positive impact on the skin, her idea for Clear was born. 


Dr. Rose was born and raised in the Greater Cincinnati area. She received a Bachelor of Science in Biology from Northern Kentucky University.  Following graduation, she decided to experience city living and moved to Chicago in optometry school. When not learning about eyes, Dr. Rose spent much of those four years enjoying all of the food Chicago had to offer! After optometry school graduation, she chose to complete a year-long residency at the Cincinnati VAMC Eye Clinic.  Following residency training, she furthered her experience by qualifying and becoming a Fellow of the American Academy of Optometry.  Dr. Rose is a current member of the American Optometric Association, the Ohio Optometric Association, and the American Academy of Optometry.

Ann, Aesthestician

Your skin is often the first thing people see. Ann, the lead esthetician at Clear, knows first hand that feeling good about your skin is an important part of self confidence. At a young age, Ann was involved in an accident that affected the skin on her face, which sparked an interest in skincare, specifically from a medical perspective. Following a robust career in marketing, Ann began her journey to help others feel great about themselves, from the skin to within. 


If you've ever admired Dr. Rose's skin, you've seen Ann's work. After years of appointments with Ann for regular facials and skincare treatments, Dr. Rose knew she had to be a part of Clear. Ann is excited by the constant evolution of the skincare industry on the medical and technological side, and has always been a stickler for ingredients, because what you put on your skin goes into your body. Ann sees good skincare as a key to feeling comfortable and confident with who you are, and it's a joy for her to help clients reach their skincare goals with a personalized, curated selection of products and services.
