Founded over 100 years ago and located in the heart of Pontefract conservation area, this practice has been an opticians since its inception. Our practice’s unique heritage is a feature which we are extremely proud of and we will strive to continue its legacy and build long-lasting relationships with the local community, providing expert eye care and eye tests to every customer. 

Why come to us?

Bayfields Opticians and Audiologists Pontefract

Our practice has been here in Pontefract for over 100 years, and we've spent time making sure our community has access to expert eye care and eye tests, as well as high-quality and friendly service. You’ll feel at home as soon as you walk through the door. For a start, we offer a free hot or cold drink when you arrive.

Our customers love the thoroughness of our 45-minute eye tests, and the way we explain the results in easy language. We even provide retinal photography as well as post-cataract examinations. We offer contact lenses, ZEISS lenses for glasses, plus gorgeous designer brand frames from Joules, Ted Baker, Tiffany, Christian Lacroix, Oliver Peoples, Charmant and more.

Got a sudden eye problem?

If you suddenly develop a small eye injury, flashing lights or floaters, irritated eyes, blurry vision, cysts or styes, we participate in the Pontefract Minor Eye Conditions Service (MECS). This means you can see an eye care professional as soon as possible, rather than having to wait to see your GP.

We’re really flexible

We offer FREE contact lenses trials, because we know almost everyone can wear contact lenses, whatever their age or prescription. We’ll also make your glasses even if you had your eye test elsewhere, and we’ll fit new lenses into your existing frames. And if you’ve had a mishap with your glasses, or something has just worked loose, we’ll do our best to make adjustments and repairs to them – even if you didn’t buy them here!

Proud to be part of the Pontefract community

We’re part of Club 5 (the Prince Of Wales Hospice business group), the Pontefract and Castleford ‘shop local’ group, and a local business initiative offering personalised vouchers to spend with us.
