Colonial Opticians has been our go-to place for lenses and frames for decades! Everyone on staff is professional, helpful, proficient and caring. Never has a mistake been made on cutting any lenses, and that was not the case with other places. I recommend them highly.

This place has excellent customer service and an amazing selection of frames and sunglasses. If you can’t find what you want, they will order it! Anytime your glasses need adjustments, they are ready and willing. Very nice staff that helped pick out a flattering pair of glasses with me.


Was looking for more comfortable frames for my computer/reading glasses – they had a good sized selection of options (more so than my eye doctor’s office). They took the time to carefully identify the lenses in my current glasses to make sure they would be ordering the right one. Took the time to get the measurements since these lenses are a little tricky to make accurately. After I got home, I realized I had given them an out of date prescription. I was able to get the updated one from my doctor and email it to them – they took care of that detail correctly too. Love the new glasses…great fit, comfortable, look nice, and the lenses are perfectly made. They were a bit expensive – I’ve learned the hard way, though – in the world of eyeglasses, you get what you pay for. I will enjoy these for years. Wholeheartedly recommend!

I just had my new glasses done in record time. As always –and I’ve been going to Colonial for a LONG time– they were courteous and efficient.
During these trying times, the Rockville location was set up to meet the CDC guidelines. I felt very much at ease. Professionalism is a given; confidence is key, particularly now.
Thank you!

It was great to get my glasses after 3 days.
