Established in Reigate since 1986
Paul Whiteman Optometrists was established in Reigate by Paul and Jane Whiteman in 1986. As independent optical practitioners, Paul Whiteman Optometrists aim to offer the highest level of eye care possible.
Our large modern practice
Since moving to our new premises at 20, Church Street, Reigate in 2004 we have built a large extension nearly doubling the previous floor space. This has allowed us to display a much larger range of spectacles, sunglasses and optical accessories. To help make visiting Paul Whiteman Optometrists a relaxed experience we have created two new consulting rooms with large air-conditioned waiting areas.
Quality & continuity of eye care
All of our optometrists and eye doctors are fully qualified and registered with The General Optical Council or General Medical Council. They all have many years of experience of providing high-quality eye care both within the National Health Service and in private practice. We employ long-term practitioners so that we can offer both quality and continuity of eye care.
We are pleased to help
As well as measuring your eyes for suitable spectacles or contact lenses and looking after the health of your eyes, our practitioners can offer a number of additional services. Whether you require advice on screening for diabetic eye disease, the visual aspects of dyslexia, prescription sunglasses, help with selecting a new magnifying glass or just need a pair of broken spectacles repaired, we are pleased to help.

What is the cost of eye care?
We are happy to explain the cost of any aspect of our services and products. Our aim is to make our prices as simple and transparent as possible.
We offer our  3 point frame and lens pricing policy which helps you work out for yourself the total cost of your spectacles whilst making your selection. Contact lens fees can be paid on a Pay-As-You-Go basis or by monthly Direct Debit to spread the costs more evenly.
We believe in offering individual, high quality, cost-effective solutions for all your eye care requirements.
Methods of payment
We are able to accept payment for products and services by cash, cheque or leading Credit and Debit cards. We can also offer Direct Debit payment for contact lenses subject to requirements (enquire in practice).
