Our services are tailored to suit you and your individual needs

Why come to us?

Bayfields Opticians and Audiologists York

Setting the bar for personal service — for over 70 years.
Bayfields Opticians, formerly known as Binngton & 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.

So many styles, so little time...
With an amazing range of designer brand frames from Calvin Klein, Hugo Boss, Ray Ban, Tiffany, Lacoste, Ted Baker, Longchamp and more, you'll find something truly stunning. And if you're looking for something new, our lens experts are expertly trained to find the most flattering colours and shapes for your style.

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.
