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.

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 was due for a check up for my eyes. Had a very extensive c...heck up lasting a good 25 minutes plus.As this is now part of the bayfields franchise I was expecting big changes. I was pleasantly surprised and relieved that bayfields haven't replaced anyone and it was still the old familiar people.
