About Binnington & Thurling Opticians

Friendly and Professional Eyecare for the Whole Family

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 by associate Optometrist Paul Khoo BSc(Hons). 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.


Modern high quality lenses are available for all prescriptions.

We are a long-established contact lens practice and undertake fittings of all kinds, from simple to complex. There are comfortable contact lens options for most prescriptions. You can be sure that whatever your eyecare needs may be, we can help. Please contact us or call in and see us for an appointment or for further information.
