Shaw’s Opticians is an independently owned practice in the heart of Heywood.
Originally set up in 1969 by the Shaw family, as part of their jewellery business, it later flourished in its own right. Since Mr Shaw’s retirement in 2009, it has been owned by Martyn Allen, a local optometrist who has put customer satisfaction, clinical excellence and quality eyewear as the priority.
Recent investment in new technology and products provides reassurance to the customer that we are always looking to improve in what we do, never settling for second best. The new decor at the practice is more welcoming than ever, and the friendly staff will make your visit to Shaw’s Opticians a pleasurable one.
As the only practice in Heywood with a full time optometrist, appointments are available 6 days a week, most weeks, but book in advance as we do get busy.
If you are eligible for NHS funded help, please inform us at the time of booking.
There’s something for everyone at Shaws, from designer brands to budget choices, so there’s no reason to go anywhere else, and due to a fantastic selection of children’s eyewear, we are very popular with the little people too!
We look forward to ‘seeing’ you soon!
Martyn, Jacky, Brenda and Sue.
