First time I've been here for my eye test and lens, (they fitted them into my current frames), and I will certainly be going back. Kindness and professional all the way through from the eye test and fitting of glasses. You do have to pay for the eye test but the equipment is first class and well worth it.

Had my first contacts appointment since the pandemic. I was very impressed with the set up and very professional and relaxed appointment. I was seen by Lisa who was great and left me at complete ease.

Would recommend 100%. I took my 7 year old son during the pandemic and wow did Colman's look after us. They made him feel so relaxed and comfortable during his time there. Great service, great staff and management and amazing range of glasses and sunglasses. Couldn't recommend them enough! 15/10. My son even said when at left, 'when can we go back?' Even with everything going on! Thank you Colman Opticians!

Made my first visit to Coleman Opticians today. The experience from start to finish was a pleasure. The most thorough eye test I have ever had conducted by a true professional who took the time to explain each and every small detail. Finally, when it came to choosing my new glasses the choice was vast and the advice perfect. I was guided to the best pair for me, not the best pair for their sales targets. 5 out of 5!

I had a test at another chain opticians as part of my work benefits, they were OK, but not fab, very business like and impersonal. The rest of my family have been using Colmans for years, as had I before. Have now been back for a test and new specs. Once again very happy, same excellent service as always and just so much more pleasant, friendly and personal. I won't go back to the big chains again. Love the new layout - very swish!

From Our Website

Joining our privilege plan will allow you to get peace of mind protection for your eye health, as well as saving money, receiving extra benefits and enables you to budget your eye care cost. The yearly cost gives you an immediate saving on a fully comprehensive sight test at Coleman Opticians, as well as a range of other offers and opportunities. Micro-suction ear wax removal is a safe, clean and simple way to remove a build-up of ear wax. It is undertaken by using a microscope and medical suction device making it the safest way to gently remove the wax from the ear canal.


Your eye health isn't necessarily just about how well you see. Eye examinations can provide early indications of a whole range of wider medical problems such as high blood pressure and diabetes. Find out more about our OCT 3D eye scan here and our Gold Privilege Plan here. From children's eye examinations, to helping you maintain your vision as you get older, our opticians are highly experienced and specialised. We will ensure you and your loved ones feel at ease during our eye examinations and will take the time to explain the results to you in a friendly, professional manner.


Although we can't always guarantee warm temperatures in the UK, the sun can be damaging to the eyes even when there's still a nip in the air. We stock sunglasses with and without prescription and will be more than happy to take the time to help you choose frames that are comfortable and flattering. Whether you are choosing sunglasses for every day use or for a special occasion, we can advise you on the perfect pair to suit your budget, vision and taste. And when it comes to designer sunglasses, we will find the frames that bring out your inner fabulousness!


If you've ever experienced blepharitis - you are not alone. This is one of the most common reasons people contact Coleman Opticians for Blephex advice. We are now able to treat blepharitis using BlephEx - a unique, new clinical treatment for blepharitis that cleans the debris from your eyelids and can keep the condition controlled for up to six months. Designed to be comfortable and non-invasive, BlephEx uses a spinning medical-grade micro-sponge along the edge of the eyelids (where the eyelashes are) to clear them.


As well as making you look great, Coleman Opticians glasses come fitted with genuine Essilor lenses as standard, the worlds leader for prescription lenses, so we know you'll see great too. Lens technology is constantly evolving, and Essilor are at the cutting edge of all of the latest designs of single vision, bifocal and varifocal lenses and coatings. Our lenses can be treated in many ways, whether a hard coat to help cut down on scratches and scuffs, an anti-glare (HMAR) to help reduce artificial glare or Transition light adaptive lenses that react to UV and natural light to protect your eyes from sunlight, we can advise you on the best option for you.
