Bayfields Opticians in Wakefield

Founded in 1955 as Patterson Opticians, our practice has been part of the Bayfields Group for many years now. For over 60 years, we’ve been helping people in Wakefield to see better and get more out of life. 

Our eye tests are extremely thorough, and can include retinal imaging. When it comes to choosing contact lenses, we’re a specialist centre and can also offer FREE contact lens trials. If you’re looking for glasses, we’ll help you to find just the right frames, which may be from our designer ranges – including Wolf, Oakley, Christian Lacroix, Ray-Ban, Ted Baker, Tiffany & Co and Hackett.     

Everybody's welcome, and if you don’t have an appointment then just pop in and we’ll do our best to see you if we can. Wherever possible, we’ll also do fittings, adjustments and minor repairs without an appointment. We’ll even make you a coffee while you wait!


Low vision aid service


We run a low vision aid service for those whose sight has deteriorated significantly. We can assess your needs and advise you as to things which may help, such as eye shields, magnifiers and different lighting.


Part of the Wakefield community


We support Pinderfields Hospital’s children’s ward with Easter eggs and the Christmas presents we collect each year. We also hold coffee mornings for Macmillan Cancer Support.
