Introducing Martyn Allen, Radcliffe’s Local Optician
Firstly, to introduce myself, I am Martyn Allen, owner and optometrist here at Martyn Allen Opticians. I also own another practice in Heywood, Shaw’s Opticians, which I have owned since 2009.

Born, bred and schooled in Radcliffe, and still living nearby, I always wanted to open my own practice here at Moss Shaw Way. Maybe the fact that I lived on the street next to the practice when I was a young lad, or that my family have owned businesses nearby in the town, it just felt the right thing to do to open in the town where me and my family are from.

I wanted to be ‘the local optician’! I wanted to put something back into the community and provide a quality optical service that the residents of Radcliffe deserve.

My time spent in Heywood has given me the experience in running a successful business, learning all aspects of the job. Prior to this, for 10 years, I was as the optometrist/director at one of the country’s most exclusive practices, in Manchester’s prestigious King Street. There, dealing with some of the country’s leading celebrities – like David and Victoria Beckham, and millionaire businessmen and women – was an almost daily occurrence, which was both rewarding and challenging in equal measures.

Using the experience I have drawn from 22 years in optics, I have created a relaxing environment at Martyn Allen Opticians, where you can come and have your eyes examined and choose your new eyewear, or buy sunglasses or have your frames repaired. Those clients who visit us regularly know what I mean. A visit to the opticians doesn’t have to be stressful. It can be fun too!

So please call in to speak to us, book an appointment by phoning 0161 425 4824 or pop in to browse.

I hope you like what you find.
