"At age 5 my eyesight was found to be fine, but I remember being fascinated with the huge tray of lenses that the Optician had to choose from, and all the weird and wonderful machines that he used. After qualifying as an Optometrist from Aston University I made it my mission to run my very own practice - but now I'm lucky enough to have two."
18 years ago and shortly after qualifying, Martin began working at Coakleys, with Mr Coakley as his mentor. In 2008 he took over the running of the business with Mr Coakley still working as a locum 2 days a week. Martin adds, "We were privileged to have Mr Coakley still working with us and being on hand with his vast experience as an Optometrist and Business owner. Mr Coakley finally retired in May 2018.
Here at Coakleys, we specialise in the human touch, taking the time to listen to each individuals' concerns, whether they are worried about the health of their eyes or about looking great in the latest designer frames. Today, Coakleys Opticians serves more than 20,000 clients, and the business has gone from strength to strength."
