Binnington & Thurling Opticians

We are an independent eyecare practice and contact lens centre located in York city centre. The practice was established in 1952 and it has constantly been updated. Our modern air-conditioned premises and friendly staff ensure a warm welcome. We have computerised equipment throughout to give an efficient service. Thorough private and NHS eye examinations are carried out by current Optometrist partners Jonathan Binnington, BSc(Hons)MCOptom and Nigel Thurling, BSc(Hons)MCOptom and also by Optometrist Vicky Emsley, BSc(Hons)MCOptom.

They are backed by dispensing optician Claire Bragan, FBDO and dispensing assistant Rachel Ludbrook. As independent opticians we are free to access the best frames from a wide range of manufacturers, from traditional styles to the latest designer ranges suiting all tastes and budgets. We often have special offers available. We are a long-established contact lens practice and undertake fittings of all kinds, from simple to complex.
