Bayfields Opticians and Audiologists York

Setting the bar for personal service — for over 70 years.
Bayfields Opticians, formerly known as Binnington & Thurling, are committed to making sure the local community of York have access to expert eye tests and eye care, as well as a high-quality and friendly service. 
We take a little extra time, because it's worth it.
There's a lot to a good eye test. We want to find out how your glasses and contact lenses fit into your life, and where we can make things better. We also want to make sure we catch any potential issues before they cause bigger problems. That's why our eye tests usually last around 45 minutes, noticeably longer than the industry standard.

Audiology service
We can also take care of your hearing, with hearing tests and access to high-quality hearing aids and helpful hearing care treatments which could improve your hearing.

I would just like to commend Alex Harrison for the time and ...effort he gave me when I was considering getting a hearing aid. It wasn't quite right for me at this time, but I never felt pressurized at any time. As a result that when I eventually definitely need one, I shall return here. Thank you for the excellent service and professionalism I received.

Incredibly helpful staff fixed my broken glasses with a new ...screw. Bit of a fiddly job getting the old one out but they didn't give up and didn't charge a penny.

I was visiting York today and had a glasses mishap. Lost a n...ose pad. So I popped into Bayfields Opticians and they not only sorted the glasses out but made them even more comfortable than before. They saved me an uncomfortable afternoon and I'm very greatful Thank you.

Extremely safe pair of hands. Knew exactly what they were d...oing and even spotted something that was worth checking medically. Happy customer.
