Coleman Opticians, based in St Augustine’s Street, won the award for its success in dispensing ColorMatic IQ Lenses for the second year running.

As well as vying for the coveted Centre of Excellence title, more than 300 opticians nationwide competed in eight categories for best-performing practices for frames, lenses and marketing initiatives.

All the winners will join Rodenstock in March on a trip to Salzburg, in Austria, the birthplace of Mozart.

The Rodenstock Club Awards were held at Four Seasons Hotel London at Park Lane on December 12, where guests enjoyed a three-course lunch before being entertained by author, broadcaster, actor and entertainer Gyles Brandreth.

  • So they sold the most of one of their supplier's products. Great. Not a real award, or a newsworthy story.

  • Mooseyt3, Mooseyt3, Mooseyt3... What can I say? I guess you didn't read the article. It IS news worthy to the local community and Norwich. Because, if you had read the article, you would have found out Coleman Optician's were up against 300+. Therefore this award will hopefully bring more business to Coleman's (preventing insolvency and another loss to the local businesses). But also this will get Norwich's name on the map further.
