'Bayfields at the University'

(Formerly Univision) Established - 1988


About Us

"Irrespective of whether you're a student, university staff member or a passer-by, we offer everyone the same, high level of quality service that is intrinsic to our core values, and focus on developing long-lasting relationships with every eye care client." 

Practice Manager: Natalie Snowden

At Bayfields at the University (formerly Univision), we pride ourselves on providing a high quality, personable and friendly service. We are conveniently situated:

  • Inside the Leeds University Union building

  • On the University of Leeds campus

Bringing world class eye care to your doorstep, we offer a wonderful variety of hand-crafted frames, exclusively selected for each individual client. We welcome everyone to our unique, on-campus opticians, including University of Leeds staff and students. From brands like Paul Smith and Tom Ford to Converse and Ray-Bans, we always strive to find the perfect solution for all of our clients.

Bayfields at the University (formerly Univision) was co-founded by Royston Bayfield, Managing Director of Bayfields Opticians in January 2004. It was the pioneer practice of what is now the Bayfields Group, and has such, kept its original name. The practice itself was established over 20 years ago and in the 8 years that it has been part of Bayfields, it has maintained its strong relationship with the University of Leeds while experiencing dynamic development and growth.

Please note we have now moved back to our original premises which can now be accessed via the new Union Square development on the Lower Groud Floor of the Univeristy Union building.
