Service with a Smile
Carlton Opticians is an Independent Ophthalmic Optician established since September 2018. At Carlton Opticians, we aim to provide you with quality eye health care services in a relaxed non-rushed environment. Our core value includes the provision of a thorough eye / contact lens examination. This is followed up with expert professional advice and spectacles / contact lenses dispensing services. We are situated on the first floor just above Carlton Pharmacy and have a lift providing full disabled access.
Meeting All of Your Needs
Thorough & non-rushed
All eye examinations will be carried out by our resident, experienced and fully qualified Optometrist. Rest assured your sight test will be conducted in a friendly and relaxed environment. The examination will be thorough and non-rushed and every step will be explained to you in detail. We cater for both private and NHS patients.
Fitting & after care service
Almost anyone can wear contact lens! We provide contact lens fitting for both children and adults. Book yourself in for a trial today. Contact lens wearers need to be seen by their Optometrist for their after-care checks regularly so as to keep a check on the health of the eyes.
Colorimetry Visual Stress Test
How can colour help?
Visual Stress is a term used to describe visual discomfort and perceptual distortions in printed text and is suffered by many people who struggle to read. The condition is estimated to be present in approximately 20% of the general population. There is a far greater propensity amongst the Dyslexic population to suffer from Visual Stress. In some cases the symptoms can be reduced by the use of coloured filters or coloured lenses worn in spectacles.
MiSight contact lenses

Feedback & Reviews
We are not happy until our clients are happy, and say so. That’s why we love receiving their feedback. We want to better understand our customers’ experiences of working with us, so that we can improve our services the next time around. Take a look below at what our clients have to say about their Carlton Opticians experiences.
I pen these few words of thanks for the great service you provided me when i needed new spectacles, from the initial greetings through the eye examination and purchase of the frames you provide a genuine and friendly service. My final choice of frames was guided by a need to overcome my problem of wearing both the spectacles and behind the ear hearing aids i have to use. Your guidance towards the finished item was much appreciated, to the extent that i just had to purchase a second pair for backup purposes. The lenses you helped me select are just perfect and the final result of frames and lenses are wonderfully light and comfortable.
Once again many thanks for a great service.

I went to have my vision checked. Thank you for the friendly and polite staff. They checked my vision very carefully. And when I was choosing glasses, the staff suggested ones that fit my face shape better. I definitely recommend it to anyone.
Went with my husband to have his eyes tested. Could not fault anything. All staff professional and so friendly. Well done to you all.
I booked an eye test for me and my daughter. I must say that it was the best sight test we ever had. Optom was very very thorough. Very professional service. Lot of choice for frames. Very happy with my specs
Really excellent eye test and advice.
Based on my experience, I would highly recommend them.
Very thorough sight test. Never had one like this before. Excellent service. I would highly recommend Carlton Opticians. Lovely & professional staff
"I can not recommend Carlton Opticians enough! After having an awful experience with my 4 years old son at a different optician, I found Carlton, when I contacted them, I told the assistant lady about our horrible experience, and how due to that we were unable to examine my son's eyes, as he was absolutely freaking out at that place. Already through the phone I had a nice conversation, I've been told, that they'll do everything to make my little one comfortable. I was blown away when we got there. They handled the situation the best way, they were nice, and understanding. Tried to win over my child's trust, nobody raised their voice, they were playful, cheeky, and most importantly patient with us.
I can honestly say, this was the best experience in our life with healthcare professionals. If your child is afraid of examination, I highly recommend you to go to Carlton Opticians! They are amazing!" Thank You so much again! :)
Best wishes, Dorina and Anakin Keller-Beaumont
